    Karolyn & Ray & Mike you are all in my thoughts & prayers at this difficult time. I know you are confident that Aunt Betty is with our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ & reuniting with
    those precious to her that are already there. May God comfort you in this knowledge that we know is true. Aunt Betty always will have a special place in my heart. She was an example to all of a truly
    selfless women of God who put others before herself & never wavered in her faith. Despite circumstances that many of us would have crumbled under she stood fast in her faith & commitment to
    God & her family. Heavens gates opened wide to welcome this angle & Saint into Jesus loving arms. I love you all & will continue to keep you in my prayers. Your cousin ALICE Gilbert
