I'm so sorry to hear of Betty's passing. She was my mother's 1st cousin, here in Maine, USA. In my younger years as a family, my parents, sister & I would go to Nova Scotia to visit Betty & Clinton and other family members. In later years Betty & Clinton would come here to Maine to visit. She was a lovely woman, and I used to enjoy our telephone conversations. I will miss hearing her sweet, kind, & gentle voice.
With Love,
