    I have known Betty most of my life. I was always at their home. She often said she felt like my second mom. I remember her baking those pies for the apple orchard she loved that job. She took pride in her home and in her children. She was always very kind to me and our family. I will miss her.

    Just thinking about Aunt Betty two weeks ago as I was posting photos of her, mom and Cecil on Ancestry. I was thinking how happy she would be to see her sister, brother and parents again. We will all be together again in that joyful reunion. Love you all.
