    Well, folks, I know there’s been some sadness in the air lately with the passing of our beloved aunt or sister, but let’s take a moment to reflect on all the beautiful memories we have with her. She lived her life to the fullest, always with an eye out for an animal in need. Betty was a precious jewel yet, a strong independent woman, reflecting all the good things in this world. Betty will continue to live in our hearts and memories, reminding us of the love and joy she brought into our lives. I do not doubt that she’s up there in heaven, playing with the kittens and doggies, and looking down on us with love in her heart.

    Let’s honor her legacy by living our lives with the love that she did. Rest in peace, Aunt Betty.

    Earth hath no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal (Isaiah 35:10).
