My sincere condolences to the Burke and Marshall families. Although I only met Betty as a child in River Bourgeois, I feel I knew her and Catherine thru my work compiling the Samson and Bourque pictorial genealogy. I hope to have this work completed this summer. Betty's father Joseph Amos was my godfather. We all enjoyed the US visitors to River Bourgeois in the summer and now greatly miss those happy days. Most sincerely, Garvie Samson
