Friends and Family: Grandma Betty will be terribly missed by all of us here in Clermont, Florida. She was such a beautiful lady. You all should be so very proud of her. I know that she is in a much better place now. I can see her now with Pap Pap Jerry at the breakfast table drinking their coffee and smoking there cigarettes with Joe Joe and Dusty on their laps! Sorry we couldn’t be there with you, but please know our thoughts and prayers are with you all during your time of sorrow. Love, Dave, Lynn, Charla, Kayla & Shayla McKitrick

Mom,

I want you to know that it was truly an honor to be able to spend the last years of your life together. Dad asked me to take care of you the day before he died, and I hope we lived up to his expectations.

I know that you were happy here and we loved having you.

Boss will be well taken care of too, I promise. Chuck would like to have him.

I won’t let the Great-grandchildren forget you. Kaden looks at your picture, says excitedly Memaw!! and gives you a hug and kiss and I’m sure they are all doing the same.

Mom you were a great Mother and role model and I hope I can live up to your standards.

We all have wonderful memories of both you and Dad and growing up in general. Thank you so much.

We were very blessed and we are very thankful.

With everlasting love,

Deb and Al

P.S. We will be looking for twice as many pennies now, some from each of you!
