I have know Betty for many, many years. When she & Bob sold the farm I went to their yard sale and bought the huge platter Betty used every year for her turkey. She made me promise to at least use it once a year, which I have done faithfully since I got it. I think of her often. I also bought her clothespin apron and use it constantly. She will be in my heart forever! Betty was a wonderful, warm and funny lady. I loved her! Please accept my sympathy and I am sorry to miss her service. I cannot get off from work, but I will be there in spirit!
