  1. I will miss our wonderful conversations, your smile, and your kind heart Aunt Bet’s. I know you wanted to go be with Uncle Hank and now you are but my heart is still broken and I will miss you so very much.

  2. There are so many childhood memories especially all the years of camping adventures that I still talk about today. Even though you will be missed we rest in our faith that you are in a better place, happy with Uncle Henry and my dear mother Jane.

  3. To all of the family,
    So sorry to hear of the loss of your Mother. God’s peace and love surround you all at this difficult time.
    We really cherish the memories of all the talks and laughs we had with your parents when we were neighbors on Joosten St.
    We know that Hank and Betty are together again in Heaven.
    Cherish all your memories!

    - Bill and Barb Bigler
