    After my mother passed, Betty said she just couldn't not send a Christmas card so she sent them to me and we enjoyed the exchange of cards and notes for several years. I will always regret not knowing that she was in Mitchell Manor for that short time as I would have visited when I was there to see Uncle Don. I will always remember Betty as sweet and smiling. Judy.
