To Betty's Family,
We were her neighbors for many years and shared friendly hellos, neighborhood information as the area changed and we were always glad to help. We remember an Easter egg hunt she had in her backyard years ago and how happy the kids were. There was a bush of beautiful orange flowers in the narrow passage between our houses. Betty commented that she liked seeing our daughter's bedroom light on. After we moved, it was good to see her at church.
May you have the comfort that Jesus promises to all who mourn.
With sympathy,
Nancy and Chuck

Shannon Cochran Posted at 10:15pm

Thank you Nancy and Chuck for these lovely remembrances of Betty. My sister and I were the little girls doing the Easter egg hunt. Our family really appreciates knowing she had such great neighbors.
