RIP my dear friend Betty. I've known you since High School & you will be dearly missed. My thoughts are with your family.
Dear Mom, even though it's only been a few days it feels like an eternity, ..you was like my best friend the older I got..before Dad passed and after dad passed we did a lot of adventures together..I will miss our casino trips away..and how you would get mad at the machine when it wasn't winning..you loved our family vacations and events because all the family got together..you are so going to be missed ..you would help anyone out as long as you could..you became very independent after dad passed..you have been a solid rock..you wouldn't let anyone go without our getting a kiss and a hug even if it was a boyfriend of you grandchildren.
You would make us laugh over the silliest of things..will miss how everytime we went by certain places you had to tell us about it even though we heard it a million times..I want you to be at peace now even though we are not ready yet ...please give Dad a big hug and kiss for us and let him know we are missing him yet..R.I.P. MOM..YOU ARE SO LOVED..🤗💔🙏🥰😥💖💕🌹
