Thank you all. Mom & Dad were indeed very special people. All 5 of us have been blessed to have called them Mom & Dad. Six when Jimmy entered their life. They touched many and we are all better because of it. Their spirit lives on in. So many stories of us sitting on the front porch and the “Dispennette” gatherings on the front lawn.

For Betty’s family,
We are deeply saddened by your Mom’s passing. She was a great person and a good friend for many years; along with your Dad. Please take some comfort in knowing that she is resting in eternal peace with our Lord and your Dad.
We knew them both very well during our time at Ascension.

My condolences to the family of Betty. She is now with that special guy Pierre in His Heavenly home. They were a lovely special couple who will be missed by many. Friends may be missed, but never forgotten.
