In memory of my dear sister Betsy

I cherish all the memories of our growing up.  "Bean" and I were 11-1/2 mos apart and we drove mom crazy, our siblings too, with the sibling rivalry stuff.  I know it was mostly because I was just the bratty older brother. But she had a knack for subtley instigating when the timing was right and always had the last word, no matter what. For two weeks a year we were the same age and she always made sure I knew that. Summers in our younger years were filled with things like going to the community pool, picking wild berries, honey suckle flowers out in the country while riding our bikes and the adventures at the yearly barn sale on Slifer Valley rd. Winter we would sled on the upper end of our street or would build snow forts next to driveway to have snowball fights with the neighbor kids across the street. When Uncle Louie and Aunt Dot would come to town in Spring or Fall they would have us out in the front yard finding four leaf clovers. Mom was surely thankful when we got into Jr high and High school when our sibling rivalry turned into friendship.  Things like cruising around we did learning to drive in dad's little stick shift Datsun station wagon was epic. Sis, your pain and suffering in this life is over, may you rest in peace. May God bless Mike, Kelsey, Melissa and Serena and family thru this difficult time.
