Great Aunt Betty I knew her through the marriage of Archie he was my great uncle, when he was married to his first wife, I’ll never forget when her and Archie attended my baptism and she hugged me and said welcome to the Lord’s family. It was so sweet of her, we used to write one another but then I stopped receiving letters and knew she moved or wasn’t able too.

May God send comfort your way at this time. I’m sending prayers your way.
