Danny and David... Please accept my condolences for your loss. One can never be prepared for the empty void that's left when a loved one dies. Our Creator promises to give you the strength to live each day though. Bettye and me stayed in contact for years. She would call to check on me. Have not heard from her in a long time. She was a precious lady. "I have heard your prayers, I have seen your tears, I will heal you." ~ 2 Kings 20:5

Aunt Bettye What fun I had as a young boy spending the night at her home and all the great times with David and Danny over the years. Thank you David and Danny for letting me share many happy years with your family. Even in this time of sorry I only have good memories when I think of Aunt Bettye. May God watch over and give comfort to the Shipman family.
