Bette was so welcoming when I joined the family. Her and I would enjoy girls day to go visit Sheila, shopping, Botanical Garden visits, baking cookies or just sitting around enjoying coffee and talking away for hours. I know she rests in good hands and I send thoughts and prayers that you find comfort in the future.
