I am so sorry to hear the passing of Betty. She always loved having Bill's friends over, and it was a popular house to go to! My sympathy to Wayne and Marci at this sad time. I get comfort in knowing that she and Bill are reunited and having a wonderful time in Heaven!

My prayers and sympathy to Marci and the family. Mrs. Meyers was a lovely woman.
I was so sad to hear of Betty's passing, I had so many great times with Billy when we were in High School, going to his home. His parents always made everyone feel welcome and were so much fun. It lifted me up to see Betty a few years ago in Mesa. She'd not changed a bit and was still that fun, vivacious lady, so happy to see me. My heart goes out to Wayne, Marci and family for their loss. I loved her too.
