Melissa, Amy, James and Jamie,
Our prayers go out to you for the loss of your mother. I have many fond memories of Aunt Betsy and I know she will be missed. I will certainly miss our long phone calls. I know you will remember her with much love as you carry on the tradition of her macaroni and cheese at your family holiday table. She was very proud that you loved it and requested she bring it to your family dinners.
With love and sympathy,

Kim and Bill Baze
