    Hope you received our card from the Funeral Home. Elizabeth was such a fine lady. Clara, Bessie and I went to see her at her house before she moved. She served us a wonderful lunch. We saw her again several times when she was at Silver Stream.I just asked Clara last week if she had heard from Elizabeth. She had talked to Elizabeth but forgot to ask her when would be a good time to come. Clara was waiting for Elizabeth to call again and we were making plans to go to Davis. Elizabeth always said it was easier for her to call us. We never did have her telephone number. Again what a wonderful lady.She will be missed.

    I am going to miss our phone calls reminicing about Plainfield and our family history. I hope she enjoyed them as much as I did. We were separated in age by 15 years so we grew much closer as we got older. I am going to miss her a lot. I will have one more Martini "with" her in her honor and pray to God to grant her peaceful and eternal rest. May God grant her happiness. Her loving "kid" cousin, Bobby.

    So sorry to hear of Betty's passing. We are former neighbors (lived across the street). She was the perfect neighbor to have. We thought a lot of her. Loved seeing her out with her dog. She was always very caring. Fred & Faythe

    Dear Sue, Jeff and family - I was so sorry to hear about your Mom. I am going to miss her so much. I am going to miss the phone calls and talking about families etc. She was a strong person, moving down to NC by herself. She knew what she wanted. She took so much pride in her grandchildren and great grandchild. She was such a caring, thoughtful person. We prayed for each other every day and I still pray for her. I hope she's up there with the rest of the family. I can't be there for the Mass but I will attend Mass for her here at my church for her. Love you Betty - When your up in heaven pray for us because God knows we need it. Love, Marge & John Baron and family.
