Dear John, Jim and Mary,
I was so sorry to hear two days ago that your mother had died. She was such a wonderful friend to our family and we enjoyed so many wonderful times with her. Your Grandmother, Grace, was a special friend to my father, Keith Marshall and even after Grace died, Bette brightened our lives. I live in Ottawa and I always looked forward to visiting my Dad, playing bridge and hearing all the fun things from Bette. I also remember many fun parties around her hot tub. She was a wonderful, caring, thoughtful and loving person and it must have been fun to have her as your mother. I am truly saddened by her passing.
