    I am Raymond Burns, Betty was my 2nd cousin, her grandmother Laura Altic was my aunt(my mothers sister) Betty and I were in the same 7th grade class at Lincoln school, and 8th grade at Frankfort junior high, we then moved and I graduated from Michigantown in 1951, I have often thought about Betty and lost track of most of mothers side of the family after I moved to Texas in 1975. My sympathy goes out to all he family. I have a class picture with Betty and I in it from the 8th grade, if any of you would like a copy just send me an email with your address and I will send you a copy. I am so sorry for your loss.

    Betty spent a lot of time with Karen and I, first as a babysitter, then as a friend. We played a lot of Canasta at each others house with Aunt Pauline, Karen and I. We lost touch with Betty when she moved to Indy, but was tickled to see her when my husband Jack and I visited mother and dad at Wesley Manor. Life is so very short and mine is shorter by the day. LeMoyne, thank you for taking care of Betty. My condolences go to you and your family. Forgive me for not coming to the funeral as I just found out and don’t have time to get to the funeral on time.
    All my love
