    I just ran across Betty’s obituary. I’m so sorry for your loss. As keeper’s of the family genealogy my parents and I spoke of her periodically. My parents, Dave and Pat Morgan, met Betty years ago and exchanged Christmas cards over the remaining time. Those Morgan genes were hardy! Blessings to the family.

    To an old friend I offer my dearest condolences to you and to all in your family. She was a special lady.

    No matter how old we are, it’s never easy to lose a parent. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you grieve. This is the passing of a life not a relationship.
