I am so sorry to hear of Betty's passing. I lost touch with her after John passed. She and John were very good friends to my parents. When my folks moved here from Delaware, they didn't know a soul in Erie but me. John and my Dad hit it off from the start, and my Mom's birthday was May 5th and she and Betty got along like sisters. They were good neighbors, and friends, and we thought of them as family. God keep you all, Sandrah Clark.
