Lynn, Gary, Gina

Were sorry learn of Betty Jean's passing. Our thoughts and prayers for all of you.
Fond, fond memories at the Taylor camp on Three Lakes. Betty Jean was such a live wire with laughs and Mosinee stories, as only she could tell them. We can easily re-live and get the same jolt often in disbelief followed by "Really?"
As if it were only yesterday. But all too many yesterdays have passed all too quickly.
Prayers for all Betty Jean leaves behind.
