My heart goes out to each and every one of you. I feel your loss. As a kid living across the street she was always there for me. In the tuff times of loosing my father at an early age she always had a smile and a hug for me whenever I needed one. She was a loving & caring aunt that I will never forget.
With Love,

Dear Betty and Tony,
I am so sorry to here of your mother’s passing, Betty.  I have found memories of working with her at Keppel’s candy factory. She was as sweet as the confections we made together.  I hold you in my thoughts and prayers as you transition through this difficult time.  May the memory of her keep a smile in your heart and on your face as you wipe the tears from your eyes.
With much love,
Adrienne Keares Gillespie
