Dear Beth, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your mom - my mother (Joan Feesche) passed away November 1 at 80 y/o.

It is comforting to see she lived a good, long life. It was lovely to read all your family's names - I'd forgotten how many I knew from so many years ago at LCS.

I hope you all find comfort in each other and your memories this holiday season.

My deepest sympathies to the whole family. Aunt Betty was such a nice lady every time I saw her. I’m sure mom and her will enjoy some nice visits in heaven. I’m sorry I can’t attend the services, but I’m sure they will be a great celebration of her life. Steve

Those we love remain with us
for love itself lives on,
and cherished memories never fade
because a loved one’s gone.
Those we love can never
be more than a thought apart,
far as long as there is memory,
they’ll live on in the heart. You will forever be in our hearts Aunt Betty
