  1. Uncle George and family. so sorry for your loss. Aunt Betty and I spent endless weekends together and for those memories she will always remain very close in my heart. She was a very special person in my life. If things were different here I would have been there. My Mom keeps us on the run. You are forever in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless and provide you with strenght to move on as she would have wanted you to. She is totally at peace. Much Love, Barbara

    So sorry for your loss. She shared her birthday with my dad and my son. She always seemed so pleasant but she probably had to be to raise all those children. God loves her. May you all find the peace of the Lord.

  4. She was Mrs. Barbera to me, although she always asked me to call her Betty : She was a fascinating woman… A woman whose heart I have never found another to be so full! Full of love for others, including children in need of a loving home, friends of her children, whom she treated as her own. She always had a smile and pleasantries to share. I remember her quick wit and sass! Afterall, she had all of those boys that she disciplined! She also has a most loving and beautiful daughter who I am forever grateful to call my friend! We may be many miles apart in distance, but have never been far apart in heart! She was loved by many, and is now eternally an Angel in truest form. A woman of strength and faith, she taught me a few lessons that I would not come to fully appreciate until years later, when I was diagnosed with chronic illness. I have always thought of her as my earthly Guardian Angel, even though I am certain that she did not at all know the impact she, and her daughter, and my wedding day Limo driver,her Husband and Linda’s Dad, George! have had on my life. I pray that God blesses Mrs. B’s loving family as they struggle through their great loss and this difficult time. Death leaves us heartache that no one can heal, yet love leaves us memories that no one can steal … With fond memories and great love, Mrs. B will be passionately missed.

    I miss your late phone calls keeping me at the kitchen table . I think of all the years growing up and how you as a big sister teased me . I miss being the brat that you used to call me . Miss not being able to pick up the phone and just chit chat . I miss you and your voice . Can’t wait to see you and I’m sure I will Some day . Loved you and will love you until we get together again . Say hi to mom and dad,Charmaine and Joey .
