With deepest sympathy I share in your loss of Betty. With every moment spent with her, I sensed a special connection with her that transcended words. She would often find calm in her storm within my presence. I hope for you blessings of calm introspective and a deeper love for her in spirit.

Dear Sandy and Gerald and all family members, I wish I could be there to comfort you. My mom passed only a couple of weeks ago. Betty was truly an inspiration to my faith while at Ebenezer. Singing in the choir with her was truly one of the biggest joys of my life. She was like family to me and her smile and joyful personality attested to her faith. Likewise, Sandy you are like a sister to me, kind, loving, a trait I’m sure rubbed off from Betty. God bless you, our hearts are wish you.

I’m so sorry,Jerry. I’m remembering Betty with such fondness. From junior high school to the day we moved from Sheboygan, my memories are full of fun and laughter. What a great gal.
