As a teenager I remember your sweet mother. For my 16th birthday she made me a cake. It was so wonderful to know her. She and your Dad were both very kind to me and showed what a real home was supposed to be.
Sorry for your loss. Sandy (Perry) Marsonette

I met Betty several years ago when I started bringing her, her prescription medication. She soon became one of my favorite coustomers. I would spend my lunch break talking about well, everything. I loved her laugh and she was easy to make laugh. She told me how she loved her sweets and ate too many. I for one did not see that it hurt her girlish figure, so told her to go for it:) We always had to peek in on her latest card work. I would take pictures off of Pinterest and give them to her. It was so funny to see her so excited and giddy over something so small. Well her first card she made me was of course beautiful. Where she had handwritten me a note she said, thank-you for helping me with all my drug problems. I laughed so hard, to the outsider they would not have known that meant helping her out when she was out of refills or needed clarification from the doctor. We got a good laugh out of that for a long time. I carry books in my car for customers , that in the winter have a harder time getting their hands on one. Which one winter was the case for Betty. I gave her a book and a couple weeks later had asked if she enjoyed the book and would she like to trade for another. This look of horror came across her face and she blurted oh no I returned it to the public library!! She was frantic let me give you some books to replace it. I kept telling her no, no that's fine. A couple weeks later she brought it up again, I said Betty really no. It only cost me a dollar, and I keep them in there for coustomers. I really don't care so quit worrying about it. She said well ok. I thought the matter was dropped when she blurted well can I give you the dollar then. Oh my- no you can't. I tell my children they are very lucky I met this wonderful woman that was a customer and became my friend. I see many people family will not have any thing to do with them. But not hers. They were always visiting, calling to check up on her. She talked very highly of them. Saying they were busy but they always seen that she needed nothing. She did not expect or demand and showed real delight when seeing them. That's how I want to be. I know this is long. Last I want to say. She told me how she had always envisioned that when her time came-she would be in a field, her on one side Jay on the other. They would run across the field towards each other, arms out stretched. Well Betty my friend I hope you were wearing a good pair of running shoes. And may this Christmas be as beautiful as the one when you lost him woul have been. Thank- you for being my friend and all the beautiful cards. Love you and until we meet again❤❤
