Today we said goodbye to a beautiful person,
both inside and out. That was tough.. I will miss
all of our long conversations and memories by
the pool with all the kids. There are so many more memories I have with you and I will forever cherish
them close to my heart. The kids asked me to tell
you they love you, so I did. You looked so at peace.
You are in a better place now and no longer need
to struggle. Please watch over us all and tell
Grams we love her. I love you and I'll miss you always.
Rest in sweet paradise Auntie Betty. Xo
