    Betty, I think that seeing the notice of your mom's graduation from earth to heaven was meant to be. This is Donna (Weaver) (from across the street on Maurice Ave.) Your mom with her smile, her constant energy and her red headed girl Betty Sue, won my heart as a neighbor. Never have I forgotten neighborhood memories with your family. I treasured our friendship Betty. I know you will miss your mom, she was a good one.? In my mind I can see her smiling and I can see your dad laughing. I was heartbroken when your family moved to Warfield. May God bless you Betty. Would love to hear from you. My email address should be listed on this post. As soon as I saw the beautiful photo of your mom in the paper and before I saw who it was, I said out loud...oh my word, it's Mrs.. Webster. I am sending to you much love and many hugs. ❤?Memories from our childhood are precious. Love ya, Donna

    Our dear, sweet Shirley. Saying goodbye is so hard. You were the matriarch of our family, I always looked up to you,. I loved coming to see you when you lived in Warfield, my favorite spot was sitting in the rocking chair in your kitchen, watching you cook. Your fresh snaps were the best, I should have gotten your secret. Now it's just Bip and me left of the five of us. Two snoops!!! Shirley, I loved you so much, you took us in your home when Bret was two and Mitchell was only three weeks old. So much to tell you, but no words to express. I'll see you when I cross over Jordan.
