    Dear Aunt Betty, You were not only my Aunt, but also my Mom, guiding, caring and advising me on things that were just between you and me, making our bond very special. I will miss the fun, the talks, the visits and especially our phone calls when you always would end them by saying "Love you, bye doll". Never, ever will you be forgotten only to hold a special place in my heart, and your wings to become my angel. I will always love and miss you but also wanted to say THANK YOU for being YOU. Love--Your niece Renee xo

    I lit a candle before but for some reason it didn't show up and I didn't want you to think I forgot to do that. You know Aunt Betty how we were with things like that. Love ---Renee xo
