Your family has been and will continue to be in my prayers during this time of grief. I'm sorry I was unable to attend the funeral service yesterday. My mother (Mildred McCurry) loved Betty and I enjoyed the times I had with her as well. She was a very special lady and I know you will be missed. She and Mama are getting caught up on everything in Heaven so I know there's rejoicing there.
