    Dawn and family, even though I never met Betsy in person, I got to know her through emails and facebook and I really enjoyed her correspondence. I will always be greatful for her help in a paper I had to do. She had a wonderful sense of humor and a gift in always seeing the glass half full in spite of her physical limitations. Blessings to all of you. IHL, Lynda Murray

    Dear Bobby, Dawn Marie, and Scott,

    I am very sorry to hear about your loss. I have very fond memories of Betsy. One of my oldest memories of Betsy was playing MasterMind with her at both Uncle Roger and Auntie Mary’s house as well as her home. I will always remember her smile and hearty laugh.

    You are in my thoughts and prayers,
