"Mom, today is your anniversary. I miss you everyday and not just on today. I'm so sad that we couldn't see each other one last time before you left to be with GOD in heaven. I miss your voice, laughter, and your presence. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of you in remembrance. Wherever you are I hope you are happy and safe, and loved. For those of us left behind, we miss you and wish you were here to spend another Christmas 2016, and New Year 2017. Until we meet again, I love you, your daughter, Betty"

"Betty, I can't express how much your mom's passing fills me
with sadness.  I only saw her a handful of times when we were children, but I recall her brilliant and warm smile, her sparkling laughter, and the warmth and love for her family.  She was so protective of you and Ken, just as a loving mother should be!  Heaven is a richer and sweeter place with her in it's possession.  Prayers to you and your family in this time of sorrow, and love to you all from us."
