Betty and Bill were wonderful neighbors in Colonial Village! We shared a lot of laughs during our years together in the neighborhood. I still have Betty’s “Elsie the cow” dessert dishes I bought at a garage sale she had – they are treasured! My sympathy to all of her family.

I had the fun and privilege of traveling with Betty and Bill in Israel with a group from East Lansing University United Methodist Church. It was fun to know them. Please accept my sympathies.
