Jean Joan Mark Tracy and family. My love and prayers go out to all of you. Aunt Bettyann was so special to me. I have lots of great memories growing with you. Especially all the curly perms she would give us. Going to see her at NHC was hard. We had good talks and laughed alot. I will always treasure her. I know her and Mama are having a good time in Heaven. My love. Lynn Morton Turner

Joan, Jean and Mark - I just heard of Betty Ann's passing through our cousin Dean Casey. Although it has been many years since we've seen one another, I have fond memories of you and your mom (and Uncle Dub) from my childhood. Please accept my condolences and find peace and comfort in one another. And please be in touch if you are so inclined. I sent Mark an Friend Request on Face Book.)
