Betsy left this world far too young! I am so sad for all of you. She was a wonderful person and friend. And I loved her baking. Unfortunately I will be out of town the 15-17th and so I will miss her service, but rest assured that she is n my thoughts and prayers. Karen ps. I was the one who built the kitty condo for her cats when she lived in Richmond Heights.
