Betty, Bobby & family, I’m so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. I have many fond memories of visiting your house for swimming and cookouts. Your Mom was always very welcoming to my family’s. Our mothers were life long friends and they stayed in touch over the years.

Betty & Family - I am so sorry to hear of Mom's passing. She was such a wonderful person. I have so many fond memories of her and your Dad while we were neighbors at River Ridge. the fun we had . . . she took care of our cat, Max; I'll never forget your Mom holding Max with all her might at my front door the morning after he had escaped and hid in the shrubs outside her kitchen! These memories and so many more will always keep her in my heart. May your hearts find peace in wonderful memories of a beautiful Mom and angel to many of us who had the fortune to be in her circle of friends. Sincerely, Nancy Haase
