Stan – Joye and I were sorry to hear about Betty’s death. You and Betty have been in our prayers since the day that you told us that she was having health problems. We will continue to pray for comfort for you and the boys.

To the family of Betty –
Though I only had 2 years to personally know Betty, we clicked on day one. What an amazingly, brilliant, strong, opinionated!, but so simple and extremely generous woman!
I will never forget her.
I am so sorry for your loss and sorrow at the difficult time.
With Love, Mona Burton

A most beautiful poem ‘The Dash’ by Linda Ellis
12 Mar 2011 by flossy1968
I read of a man who stood to speak at the funeral of a friend. He referred to the dates on her casket from beginning to the end. He noted that first came the date of her birth and spoke of the following date with tears, but he said what mattered most of all was the dash between those years. For that dash represents all the time that she spent alive on earth and now only those who loved her know what that little line is worth.

For it matters not, how much we own, the cars, the house, the cash,

What matters is how we live and love and how we spend our dash.

So think about this long and hard; Are there things you would like to change?

For you never know how much time is left that can still be rearranged.

If we could just slow down enough to consider what is true and real

and always try to understand the way other people feel.

And be less quick to anger and show appreciation more

and love the people in our lives like we have never loved before.

If we treat each other with respect and more often wear a smile,

Remembering that this special dash might only last a little while.

So when your eulogy is being read with your life’s actions to rehash…

Would you be proud of the things they say about how you spent your dash?
