  • Uncle Gene, I visited my parents last weekend, and they told me that Aunt Betty was not doing well at that time. I am saddened to hear of her passing. I can literally hear her voice right now. She was such a kind woman. I will always remember her shaking her head at the antics we created with Janis. I hope you are comforted by knowing that her ills are behind her now, although her loss is great.
    Fondly, Mary Kaye
