    There are not enough words to express how wonderful Betty was. Although I was not a part of the family any longer. When I was, She was the best mother in law you could ask for. For me she was like my second mother, we shared a lot of fun times together. We did a lot of running around together, shopping & lunch. She was always there when you needed her. And she was a great grandmother too. And boy could she cook. I remember a lot of great dinners, and holidays with her. She will be so missed! My thoughts and prayers are with all the family. Love you Betty!!

    To Aunt Betty and the rest of the family. I remember coming up in the summer time with Grandma and Grandpa Carper, sitting down and eating meals with you, Uncle Junior and what kids that might be there. I remember going to church with Cheryl and being teased by Mike and Bill.

    Aunt Betty and Uncle Junior treated me like their own and I will forever miss Aunt Betty. The trips home to Grandma and Grandpa Carpers were just as great and fulfilling.

    I loved when all of my aunts and uncles and cousins came in to visit those were the best times and Brian for some reason your birthdate has always stuck with me. Cheryl the times shared with you will never be forgotten especially sleeping in the back bedroom at Grandmas when a hard rain came, it sounded like monsters, and your Mom’s smile and Uncle Junior’s sternness seemed to melt whenever I was around.

    As I finish this I know of the wonderful memories you have you with your wife, mom, mother-in-law and Grandma and they will never leave you, they are yours to keep forever.

    Also I know the happiness, the difficult times and the heartbreak that you have had to travel on this path called Alzheimer’s because we have just started traveling this same path with my mom, Aunt Betty’s youngest sister, Ella about six months ago.

    Even though I am not there physically I am there with you in spirit. May God comfort each of you in the way he knows best.

    I love each and every one of you and Aunt Betty you may be gone, but never will you be forgotten, but now go rest peacefully on that mountain because all work is done for you on earth and you and your memories will carry on..

    To the rest of the family I extend my sincerest, heartfelt condolences and know that you were very loved by your Wife, Mother, Mother-in-law, Grandma and Great Grandma very much and she appreciated everything you did for her. But most importantly you can carry those memories with you for the rest of your life.

    Love to each of you, Uncle Junior. Mokr and Cindy and family, Chery and family, Bill and family and to all of the extended family and friends.
