"Sue and Cyndie and Family:

I have only fond memories of Auntie Betty. From the summer at Leaf Lake to trying on sample clothes from the business to her cute beloved pomeranians and walks down the block a few houses away from us when they lived on Ottawa. I think I recall her canning pickles. No? She had an infectious laugh and love of family. She was a real Bauer and is now playing cards with them all, Fritz serving up the drinks! Love and sympathy to you and your families."

We are happy you are with Fritz and dancing in the stars but, you will be surely missed.
Much love always to you and your family."

""Here is a flower for you Mom.  You will always be in my heart.  The memories are so many....You were such a great cook.  I have many recipes that you made and still make many of them.  You always made the Holidays and Birthdays so special! The summers at East Leaf Lake will always be special to me.  Mike still talks about the great fishing there.  My kids and your Great Grandchildren and Great Great Grandchildren will always remember you.  All the great times celebrating birthdays and family gatherings in Florida.  You are at peace now and with Dad.  Love you and miss you."

"To the family,
  Though i dont know you personally, I still wish to express my deepest condolences for the loss of your loved one. I wanted to write you and share something encouraging. When i have lost loved ones in death, i have found comfort in knowing that God provides us with a hope for the future. John 5:28-29''..For the hour is coming, in which, all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.." God gives us the promise that we can see our loved ones again, by means of a resurrection. Acts 24:15-" there is going to be a resurrection.''
But you may wonder, can we really believe that this will happen? In the Bible, we find more comforting words. Matthew 19:26-'' With men it is impossible, but with God all things are possible." Whatever God promises, will come true. He gives us this promise because he cares for all of mankind, he wants us to be happy.( 1Peter 5:7)
Please feel free to visit where you will find more of promises for the future or email me with any questions."

"Here is my candle for  my Mom, Bette Chesney.  She lived a long (almost 94) life with typical ups and downs, but on the whole good.  She was a FANTASTIC cook, VERY pretty and worked hard to take care of me and my big sister Sue.  She and Dad loved to dance, fish up at East Leaf Lake and cook and bake cookies and breads. I remember coming home from school, calling her at work and she would tell me what to do to start dinner with whatever she had taken out to thaw that morning.  That's how I learned how to cook!  Thank you Mom for giving us your all and loving us. I know you are free from pain now and with Dad. Love you and rest in peace, until we meet again."
