I knew Betty thru my folks, Kenneth and Jo Wilcox. She always had a smile on her face and very tolerant of me and my questions about antiques and such.
Please know that she will be missed.
My condolences to the Stachurski Family. May you find comfort during this very difficult time in your lives. The loss of a dear loved one is heartbreaking, but we can find comfort from Gods word. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 tell us that Jehovah is the Father of tender mercies and God of all comfort and he will comfort you during your time of sorrow. John 5:28,29 assures us of a promise made from God that our dear loved ones sleeping in death would hear the voice of his son Jesus and come out of their memorial tombs. God promises to resurrect them back to life on a paradise earth where sickness and death will be no more. (Revelation 21:4- death will be no more; Isaiah 25:8-Jehovah God will swallow up death forever). What a wonderful promise to look forward to seeing our dear loved ones again on a perfect paradise earth. Psalms 37:10,11&29- meek and righteous will possess the earth and live forever upon it.
Miss my Betty Boop. I got the pleasure of taking care of her at Medicalodge. Miss and think about her all the time.
