    May you find strength in prayer, lighthearted memories and photographs through this difficult time.
    I hope you allow her soul’s energy to comfort you, as well as uplift you, for she is always with you and will forever be in your heart.
    I pray for peace and comfort for each of you as you try to adjust your new normal.
    I have found when my Dad was too weak on Earth to help me through situations …although not physically here … he has much more strength and guidance from above, which is quite comforting.
    I hope you have that also.
    I send love and light.

    Bill and family, My sincerest condolences to all of you, and, of course to the memory of Betty Jean as well. My recollections of the Heffers family go back just about 65 years to the time we were next-door neighbors on 9th Street in Wyoming. Betty Jean, Bob Fenner, and I were childhood playmates. And I clearly recall the Colonel’s Garter days when you couldn’t decide how to proceed with your newly found feelings of love. You made a great choice that resulted in a wonderful life and family. May God bless you all and bring you comfort at this difficult time and always. Jim Belcastro – St. Petersburg, FL
