R.I.P. Betsy,I hope the 1st stop you made in heaven was having coffee with my sister.I am very fond of you and will miss you,you are free of pain finally and hope you enjoy it.A memory that comes to me is when Shianne was little sitting on your lap and you told the daycare kids to stay away from the road,little Shianne pointed her finger at the road and told the kids "stay out of the road kids".You were a good Mom and Grandma and they will miss you deeply and you loved them deeply,they will be okay with time but you will be there to watch over them.Who better to have watching over them.Now don't give them too hard of a time in heaven they don't know what they are in for :) Prayers,thoughts and Love to your family! Chris
