I am so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. I had the opportunity to visit with her many years ago. Mom’s are special.
May memories replace the sadness your feeling. Prayers to all of your family. Sandy & Bob Tuma
I belong to a band named 3 CHORDS AND A CLOUD OF DUST. We played many times over the past 10 years at Tabitha where Betty resided. Betty and I became good friends over the years. We would always sing “Hello Betty Lou” just for her, and she would get up and dance…or we would dance together when she was able. Also, before covid, I would play for Betty in the Chapel at Tabitha. She loved the old hymns and country songs. We would visit and she’d tell me stories about her life. We had such a great time! I miss my friend “Betty Lou”.
