Wes and family, I am saddened by Betty's passing. I remember how kind she was to Sylvia on our last visit to Indiana. We know first hand how difficult this is for a family. Jesus has provided a mansion, for believers, as recorded in John 14:1-6. This is reason to rejoice, even in oru sorrow. James Kirksey

Wes, I just found about Betty's passing from Bev Dorel. I try to read the obituaries regularly but I surely did miss this one. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. My wife, Nancy, has dementia and is now in the Dementia unit at Greenwood Village South. If I remember correctly, that is the same problem Betty had. It is a terrible disease and I visit her three or four times daily in our dementia unit here at Greenwood Village South. I offer my condolences to you and understand what you have been through, as I recall.
