Jamie, You resemble your Grama ...especially looking into her warm, welcoming eyes. <3 I'm sure she was a truly amazing woman and fun loving spirit. I can only imagine the many stories she to share of her travels and life abroad and the life lessons learned along the way. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to you, "Little Man", very much so your Momma, as well as your siblings and your extended family. May you find comfort that you were able to be with her in her final days. Though, my heart weeps for those who were unable to say a proper goodbye due to the pandemic. May you all find peace in knowing that she is whole again in the presence of the Lord, no longer suffering and is finally at rest. And may you find solace as she rejoins her husband within the golden gates of heaven. I am sure your family has many memories and stories can and will be shared as the days and years pass of the special moments spent with her throughout the 91 years she was blessed with on this earth. My prayers continue to reach out for you all.

Dear Terry, Toni, Robbie, Trudy and all, Earl told me of Betty's passing. Please accept my condolences. Not being able to gather to celebrate the life of loved ones was unthinkable before COVID-19. My thoughts and prayers will be with you and your families now, on Monday and in the future. With much love, Jeannette
