Just now seeing this and I am so very sorry to hear of Betty's passing. She was a special part of our lives and I'm sure the "club" is together now....

I was privileged to live next door to Joyce and Barry and learn to love "Mom". A wonderful, loving woman who I learned to cherish. God bless and hold you and your family.
