Dear Walt, Karen, Joan and David:
Thank you for the beautiful flower basket you sent. Scott decided he would like to take it home and he is going to replant the individual plants and keep them in his home or his garden.
Love, Gayle

My heartfelt condolences to Betty's family. She was a kind, gentle lady and was a good friend. I have fond memories of our family gatherings at the Benedict homestead with all the members of our families.....the fun and laughter we all shared with each other. Jake and Betty were treasures and they are sorely missed. The memories I have of the many times at their house when we just sat and talked, shared stories and there was always lots of laughter. Rest In Peace, dear friend.
