We will miss you our dear sweet neighbor, we will miss seeing you out tending to your flower gardens. Rest in peace sweet lady, we know you are dancing with glory in heavens. We will not forget you! Love your neighbors on the other side of the fence, the Crossman's.

Such wonderful memories of Aunt Betty when I was growing up. She was the "fun one" :) Prayers to her family - we've not seen each other in quite a long time.
