"Our sympathy and condolences to the family. We were neighbors of Betty and Bill while they lived in Murphysboro. I remember the many impromptu picnics we had on their deck in the back yard over the years. Betty was a wonderful cook making many delicious dishes which we would share. She was so proud of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. We were so blessed to have Betty and Bill as neighbors and friends."

"It's been a lot of years ago when she tried to talk me into giving blood at the hospital. She finally called my twin brother and he came in and gave blood only because he thought I had been giving blood. After that I gave blood and on the 1st draw she poked a hole in the tubing and had to throw the by the way. She felt so bad but I told her it was okay and I give many many gallons after that. She worked in the best department at the hospital and those girls sure had fun in their working together."

"Cindy, I'm sorry to hear about your mom. She was a very sweet person. I will always remember her working in the lab at Graham Hospital. She had a beautiful smile and the best attitude. If I donated blood or had to have blood work drawn, I was always glad she when came through the door and was going to be my tech for the day. Another fond memory is visiting with her before or after church. You are in my thoughts and in my prayers."
