    Betty and I grew up as cousins. And had fun playing at her house and all the family get togethers. As we got older we lost touch but Aunt Delores would always tell us how she and her family were getting along. It was always fun when us cousins would get together, and eat the small baloney on crackers Uncle Melvin always ate. I am so sorry to here of her passing and know she will be missed by all.

    Have cherished memories of Sunday’s with uncle Melvin and Aunt Delores, Betty, Gary and Butch. Life gets in the way and we lost contact after Aunt Delores passed away. It is reassuring to know that Her mom and dad were there to grant her. Rip Betty. You will be missed.
