    We enjoyed your mother’s quick wit and thoughtful conversation. She was always so kind to us and the boys. We will miss her and her keen eye watching out for all of us on Pond Plain Road.

    So sad to see another of the Cruickshank clan pass away. Betty was dedicated to her “girls” and the entire extended family – she will be missed but remembered fondly.

    Dear Jane,
    I was going to look back at my Mom’s obit (March 8), and I noticed your Mom’s obituary. I’m so sorry to know you are going through this loss, too. I was in Westwood visiting my parents recently and walked by your house thinking about you and wondering how you were/where you were. I have great memories of our friendship and your Mom’s hospitality. -Sue Downes Borko
