Dear Lori, Jackie and Family,Such a difficult time when you lose a very special and integral part of your family. Someone else will have to get your mom's recipes for homemade donuts and jam tarts and continue the tradition. We hope that fond memories of Betty ease your period of mourning.In deepest sympathy,Bryan and Cindy

Daryl, Your friends in Anderson University's CIDL want to extend our condolences to you and your family on the loss of your mother. We have all enjoyed reading your family's sweet eulogy of her long life and the many sweet relationships she cherished. We especially appreciate the eternal hope you embrace in spite of your sadness and know that your family will draw strength from the memories of a life well-lived. You are in our thoughts and prayers."Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For as we share abundantly in Christ’s sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort.”Thank you,Andria CarpenterDirector of Professional and Lifelong Learning
