Dear Mike, children and grandchildren:

We are so sorry for your loss.

I will forever remember the smile in Betty's voice. It was always a pleasure to speak with her as she was so cheerful, unfortunately it was over the phone as we lived so far apart, but the miles melted away as we talked.

Mike, Mark & family, and Candice & family: My heartfelt condolences at the loss of your wife, mother, and grandmother. From the first time I met her in our late teens in Brampton, I loved her warmth, her wit, and of course her Newfoundland accent! Loss is so hard, but as the truism states, it’s the cost of having loved. On behalf of myself, Don, and my kids and their families, our love and thoughts are with you.

Uncle Mike, Candice, Mark and family,
We are so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all, always. Aunt Betty was an amazing woman and a huge part of my life growing up. Her love for storms and the weather network, her amazing camping organizational skills and hacks, and her amazing food will be a cherished memory of mine among so many more. Her smile and laugh will forever be remembered. I pray all of your memories will carry you all through this very difficult time. Aunt Betty, thank you for being you. Love you always.

My heart and soul is with all touched with the sadness of losing Betty. There is no greater loss than the one of a loved one, its so painful and that comes in waves for a while but one thing is for sure, and this I know from experience…they are with us in our everyday and show us that they are. So please don’t get stuck in the mud of sadness for too long, lift your head up sometimes because she will show you some signs if her presence, I promise you! Our hearts are with you in the West Coast, we will keep you close in thoughts when we look at our mountainous beauty and we are so very sorry for this immense loss. Much love! ❤️🙏❤️
