    My treasured Aunt Betsy – I will miss you so much, you were the best aunt I could have ever asked for – for that I am eternally grateful. I have so many great memories and take great pride whenever I am told of a similarity we share – it’s the ultimate compliment. You were a gift to anyone who was lucky enough to know you. Your smile and laugh was contagious and you just made people feel good. Love you always. Uncle Gerry, my heart is with you.

    My heart is broken by Betsy’s passing. Betsy was such a kind and gentle, yet fiercely strong woman whom I admired and learned so much from during the time I had the pleasure of working for her. Lots of people come and go in your life but only a few have an impact that can be felt and seen for the rest of your life. It’s been nearly 18 years since I worked with Betsy, but I still see a lot of her influence in my work habits. I credit much of my success to things I learned from Betsy. She was so good to me back then and we kept in touch through the years and she was always genuinely interested in how my family and I were doing. I will miss her terribly.

    Gerry, my heart aches for you. The love you had for Betsy was so obvious and I know she loved and appreciated you so much. Please know that you are in my thoughts. I’ll be in touch soon. Take care.
