Kathy, Please accept my most sincere condolence for the loss of your mother. The service was beautiful and your nephew did a wonderful job describing Betty's deep faith and devotion to family. I can honestly tell you that even though it's been several years since I last saw and spoke to her, she made a profound and lasting impression on me and my faith in God. She also made the best turkey tetrazzini I ever had! I'm sorry I was personally unable to convey my sympathy to you and the rest of the family, particularly George, after the graveside service. In any case, I would love to visit with George, so please make a point to convey my sympathy and greetings. Pat Ptacek & Family

Kathy, I have been thinking back on the times I was at your house when we were in school. Your mom always reminded me of the kind of mom's I'd see on TV shows. She was 100% a mom. Gosh, we sure drank a lot of pop back in those days, didn't we? I'm thinking about you.

I was sorry to hear of the death of your wife and sweet mother. I enjoyed working with her so long ago at the Firehouse since I got to know her as Betty - a fun co-worker; not just Mrs. Riedmann - the very involved parent at OLL who was so active in the parish. She was one of the first adults I had permission to address by her first name. She was very kind to me and my sisters.

Dear Riedmann Family,
My heart breaks for your great loss. I always so enjoyed your mother. I remember her joy and enthusiasm in helping with so many diffrerent Mercy events when you girls were in high school. I was always touched by her gentleness and the warmth and joy contained in every word spoken. I will pray to her now, asking her to give all of you the comfort you so long for during this most difficult time.

With Deep Prayers & Sympathy,
