    Betty, a long-time family friend who meant so much to me, was a sweet, kind ,fun and encouraging person . She endured great strength throughout her life and stayed strong and vibrant until the very end. Now she is encircled in God’s love and the love of others who made their journey before her. Her spirit will live here on earth, in those she loved and all who loved her. We will always remember her fondly…. Sue and Tom

    Hi Allen and family,
    So sorry to hear of your moms passing. May she rest
    In peace.
    With the 75th. Anniversary of the war, I’ve been thinking
    of our dads a lot. Our parents were such good friends.
    I’m sure they are in heaven, all together again.
    Love to you and your family,
    Sue Pudlo
    Robert and Betty Smiths daughter.
