I was so sad to hear the news of Betty's passing. I have such wonderful memories of visits to her home in Minocqua, WI. We had so many laughs tubing on the boat, played countless games of Atari, were amazed at Jim's card tricks and stories, and Betty always went out of her way to make a delicious meal for us. She was an incredible person and I hope that your memories of her give you comfort during this difficult time.

My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you on the loss of your mother and grandmother, Betty. She truly delighted in her family and the times she shared with all of you. She always made me feel welcome and never tired of sharing stories of her visits with Michael in Minocqua.
I hope your memories provide you comfort through the sadness.

So sorry to hear about Betty. I worked the Pine Grove Estate sales with her for a long time.
She had a knack for selling so much jewelry to people. She could convince them that
it was the prefect piece for them! Betty once told me a story that I have repeated many times,
not telling it as good as she did, of course. It was when she met a black bear face to face at her
back door one night. She wasn't sure who was more afraid- her or the bear!! She was a special lady.

I am so very sorry for your loss. Please find comfort in God's sure promise of a resurrection as set forth in the Bible. (Acts 24:15; John 5:28,29) Those who are raised to life will have the prospect of never again being subject to misery, sickness, or death. (Revelation 21:4) I hope that reflecting on these thoughts will give you some relief during this difficult time.
