Iendm so sorry for her children, I had become a good friend to her. We both met at the Ywca, but when I got my apt I asked her come with me. She shortly after went to Ca. I was left many of her things that she couldnt take with her. It surprises me that her sister was doing the arranging. Unable to attebend because of transportation it saddens me. I know she is with the lord now and in a better place. God Bless the family. D

I had the great pleasure to be married to Betsy, and I was made a better person for it. I know Bets had wanted to know her real mother, and believe in my heart, they are now together.
I am sorry to her children, who I only met briefly. She will be sorely missed in this world. Sleep now my wife, forever at peace.
