  1. Glen, Jerri Ann, Greg, & families:

    We were deeply saddened to hear the news of Ms Betty’s passing. We want to express our deepest sympathies and extended prayers at this season in your lives. We have fond memories during our children’s time at Brandon school and the many interactions with Ms Betty that happened almost on a daily basis, while my memories go back well into my childhood. We pray that the Lord will bring to remembrance the many precious memories of love and laughter that you shared during her lifetime and bring comfort to your hearts.

  2. Dear Glen, Spud and Greg: I was saddened to see the notice of Betty’s passing in the paper today. Since I have married again and have been in Florence again for the last few years, I have wondered many times where y’all all might be. I wish you all comfort and sweet memories of your wife and mom. I sure have many, many good memories from long ago of all of you. I pray God will give you all the strength you need to do what you must do during this very difficult time.
