Rusy, Linda, Cindy, and Brenda, I wish to send my prayers and sympathy to you on the loss of your mom, Betty. I was a flower girl in her wedding and your babysitter when you were all young and, of course, her neighbor for many years. I am very happy that I was able to visit with her these last few years at the cafe. God Bless. Nicki Rasmussen Warren Chandler, AZ

To Betty's Family: As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends. Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the following Bible verse, John 11: 11 where Jesus said: .."Lazarus our friend has gone to rest, but I am journeying there to awaken him from sleep." Please also find comfort in knowing that our Almighty Heavenly Father holds out the hope of the resurrection and the ability to see our loved ones again.
