Ria, like a lot of folks on here I found it difficult to get Betty and that wee family out of my mind today. I was just showing that lovely picture of Betty and Archie to my husband there, and I was saying to him just how special Betty is as a person. My husband said, "What your saying is she makes you feel safe " and I thought that was a lovely way to describe those very few special people we meet in this life.
Aye, your husband's a wise man Melody...comes frae livin wi a wise wumman.. laugh.gif
I've taught him all he knows Java. smile.gif
As long as ye dont teach him all YOU know, womankind is safe... laugh.gif laugh.gif
How could they take it all in Java? No point in upsettin' the wee souls. wink.gif Take Care pal.

Just checked in here. Soooo sorry to hear of Bettys Grandaughter, my prayers are with them, sooooo sad
Ria, do the newer members of the GG know that Betty is a poet? After the meet at Wee Mags in 2004 we were all treated to her memories in rhyme. I printed it out because it was so special. The wee grandkids sleep in my place when Suzy does night duty at the hospital. They say their prayers and we include special intentions. Betty and her grandaughter will be remembered. They always like a wee story so I will tell them about Betty and her courage.
Nice one Bunty !!! wub.gif

Dear God let not your servants come undone but even moreso let their hearts & their faces Stay Aglow! Theres still more love to share furr awe this wummin has been frae here tae there Dear God Speed yer Replys to our prayer!

At the rising of the sun and at its going down,
We remember them.

At the blowing of the wind and in the chill of Winter, We remember them.

At the opening of buds and in the rebirth of Spring,
We remember them.

At the blueness of the skies and in the warmth of Summer,
We remember them.

At the rustling of leaves and the beauty of Autumn,
We remember them.

At the beginning of the year and when it ends,
We remember them.

As long as we live, they too will live;
for they are now a part of us, as we remember them.

When we are weary and in need of strength,
We remember them.

When we are lost and sick at heart,
We remember them.

When we have joys we yearn to share,
We remember them.

When we have decisions that are difficult to make,
We remember them

When we have achievements that are based on theirs,
We remember them.

As long as we live, they too shall live,
for they are a part of us, as we remember them.

Betty,you know by our wee talks to one anotherthis week how I feel
and Ria like Catherine said ita a hard time for you being so far away from all at this time

Iam home in Heaven dear ones,
Oh so happy and so bright!
there is perfect joy and beauty in this everlasting light,
All the pain and grief is over,iam now at peace for ever Safely home at last.
did you wonder I so calmly trod the valley of the shade?
Oh but Jesus love illuminated every dark and fearful glade
and he came Himself to meet me in that way so hard to tread
and with Jesus arm to lean on
Could I have one doubt or dread?
Then you must not grieve so sorely
for I love you dearly still.
try to look beyond earths shadows,pray to trust our fathers will

god bless Jennifer and may she rest in peace
I am thinking of you still, Betty, and now too, of your grand-daughter. You will both be in my prayers tonight.

God bless your family, and I know he will give you the strength to carry on.

Love from Susanne
So very sad ,my deepest sympathy to all of the family.

Eternal rest grant unto her oh lord,
and let perpetual light, shine upon her,
May she rest in Peace.-Amen.

Betty and Gemini,
I just heard today of the passing of Jennifer. She was so young, as were her parents, I couldn't even begin to imagine what they are going through right now. For a child to go before her parents is against nature. My thoughts go out to her young parents and to you also, Betty and Gemini. Very sad. RIP Jennifer.
Dear Betty, I don't know you, but my heart goes out to you. To lose your darling granddaughter just doesn't bear thinking about. May you get the strength to cope. My thoughts are with you and your family at this sad time. Lots of Love to you allXXXXXX
Betty and Ria, my words cannot express how much I feel for you today as you mourn the loss of such a young life.

The Lord bless you and keep you
The Lord make his face shine upon you
And be gracious unto you;
The Lord life up his countenance upon you
And give you peace

God Bless,
Betty I am heart broken for you and your family tonight. Your darling grand daughter taken at such a young age.May she rest in peace. There is one more angel in heaven tonight. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

that was beautiful Lindamac, and I know betty will appreciate it, I talked with her last night, and she said she was just chilling out as it was a really hectic week for her and the family, she also wanted to make sure I told you all how much she appreciated the thoughts, prayers and condolences from all of you and was really touched by the outpouring. Thank you all again.
Dear Betty
When I read the bad news about your operation I was totally taken aback and felt dreadful about this set back. I was thinking of you often and didn't really have the proper words to express how much I cared. I know we have never met in person but I feel I know you from all your postings and those of your friends on the boards. It seems that you are a caring, strong, fiesty, kind person, to mention just a few of the great things that have been said about you. It has been my good fortune to have made your acquaintance on the boards.
The news of the loss of Jennifer hit me like a physical pain, the loss for both her parents and yourself, overwhelming. I have no words to ease the loss but I do know that faith can pull us through these times and I know yours is strong. You are a sterling person and an example of courage and grit to all of us.

Ria, it is the worst of times when we are not there-at least in person, I know your heart is there.

God Bless the entire family and help them through this horrendous loss.

Hugs coming through, Irene
Ria, Betty, I had a special prayer that my own children said at bedtime so I taught it to the grandkids. However, I always let them add on their own prayers for special intentions. I had told them before going to bed about Betty and Jennifer. There were tears in my eyes as I listened to them asking Our Lord to comfort both of you. wub.gif from Bunty and the Braz grandkids.
Marion Dougan

Got a phone call from betty today, she is bearing up not bad considering,Jennifers funeral was yesterday and what a great turn out she got, betty said it was a beautiful service but as you can imagine was very very sad.

She asked me to thank you all again from the bottom of her heart.

A wee special thank you to jimmy, betty got all your phone messages, she is just gonna have a few days to herself now as best as she can and be there for all her family.
