There is so much to tell about Betty she was a wonderful aunt. She came to the cottage once and drove up in a car that she couldn’t open the drivers door on so she got out the other side. She immediately said pour me a vodka because those roads are awful!! She came numerous times after that mostly with my mother and the two of them together were really something. One time I had Jean Laura and Betty there and the power went out for over a week but that didn’t stop them we cooked on the BBQ played Scrabble and Rumoli by candlelight and had a great time!! I will always cherish the memories
