“You gave me so much – but the thing that’s made my life rich and good and worth the living is the thing I took for granted, and thought too ordinary to note.

Your love

Constant and forever”

I love you too Mom. You are in my heart forever.

It has now been six months since Betty has passed away, and not a day goes by that she is not missed by her children and family. We think back on her wonderful meals that she prepared with such passion, it was truley an art to her. Hearing her voice and just the daily stopping by to see if she was fine.

Betty lived an amazing life, and she has touched all of us more than we realized until now.

We miss you.

Your Mom was a welcome addition on several trips Kay and I led for WTRF-TV back in the “old days”. She was a nice lady. I will keep her in my prayers.
