"Pam and family, as you know your mom and dad were very special people to me. I first met them at the campgrounds in Hannibal on your mom's 60th birthday, that is almost 40 years ago. Too many memories to to just mention one. One of the first times I was at their house I had asked to use their restroom, they both said sure it's upstairs, but it will cost you a quarter, then they both just laughed. So that was our little joke. (after that I made sure I had a quarter) Betty will be deeply missed. Now she is at home with Norm playing with the dogs and watching basketball and hockey. So glad I had the chance to met and know both of them and gain a friend in you Pam. I will keep you and your family in my prayers."
"I?m so sorry for your loss Pam, Roy, and family. Your Mom was such a sweet lady, I have fond memories of her when I used to come to your house when we were younger. She always made me feel so welcome. I remember different times her asking me if I wanted an Ice cream sandwich and /or a soda. She always made sure I didn?t go hungry or thirsty lol. She took us to Vacation Bible School. Those were fun times! She was a blessing!! If there is anything I can do to help, please let me know.
"Betty & I both graduated in 1948, from QHS. She was always smiling & had a beautiful spirit. Whenever we would see each other in later yrs. we always had to visit & catch up on our families. My deepest Sympathy to each of you. May you find peace in the memories you made together.

"Betty was a cherished neighbor, client, and most of all a friend. I have many wonderful memories of Betty in the yard with her beautiful collies, when she and Norm would take their Mopeds out for a ride, and the amazing Christmas displays they put up. We neighbored for 40 years and I saw her every week at the beauty shop, where she would arrive breathless and say "I'd have been here sooner if everyone would have just gotten outta my way". Loved her for her spunk. Lots of good memories. "
"So sorry for your loss Pam, Betty was a great lady I have known your mom from Monday Bowling and then when she went to Sunset Home our Church Group would play cards every other thur evening and she would try to play. I well never for get that smile of hers when she would see me. God Bless !!"
