    So sorry to hear of Betty’s passing.  You are all in my prayers as you remember all the wonderful times together.

    My sympathy to your family.  We were neighbors back in the 60's on Keystone Street.  We both moved from there and saw each other infrequently but when Betty moved to Cedar Falls she and I enjoyed some time together and reminisced about the days of raising our families on Keystone Street.  She loved her family!  Blessings to all of you in the days ahead and cling tight to your memories.

    Such sad news.  So many great memories.  She was an awesome lady.  Always welcomed all of us guys over at their house on Liberty back in our Columbus days.  Thoughts are with y’all.
