"Sis, I will forever miss you.  We had a lot of good times shopping in Tucson, going to Big Lake and starting our camp fire, brother cutting down the twig from a tree for hot dog roast and getting a 25$ ticket, going to Safford to visit you two, even going to the New Years Church dance for our age and leaving because the music was to old for us four. Going to Las Vegas to see Elvis and brother putting on the wrong pair of pants that were too short and wondering what happened to his pants, then we found out they were Archie's pants.  Going to Mt. Graham in the Summer and it hailed on us so we filled our ice chests with the hail for ice.  The time that we went to Mexico and you made your swimming suit and when we got in the water the suit started to stretch longer and longer because the material was stretchy terry cloth.  That suit got passed back and forth for birthdays for several years.  You guys parking your motor home in our front yard in Sahuarita while brother went to Chemo in Tucson for a couple of weeks.  No wonder I am going to miss you so much.  We had so many fun times.  I love you and will miss you so much. Thank you for being my Sister and taking Eydie and me in when Mom died and not letting us go to Eloy with Daddy.  I love you."

Much love to all fm Aunt Betty"
