I am so sorry to hear of Betty’s passing.we stopped to see her when my mom(Frieda Stanford Lowery) and I were on vacation a lot of years ago. It is tough to loose someone you love. My deepest condolences. May you be consoled in God’s love. I am Darlene Schultz Fritz. I have fond memories of Aunt Rose and Gep, Vernon and little Rose, and Sugg. God bless all who mourn.
