  1. To Janet,Karen and John,

    I’m sorry to hear about your mom passing. What a wonderful lady she was
    and I have so many memories of us kids playing around the house on Bunner
    St.I have to give credit to Betty for the Egg and Olive Sandwiches she use to
    make while we bailed hay on Tyler’s Farm in the summers while they took
    some time off from there farm duties. Thanks Betty for taking me to the races,
    Selkirk and Fairhaven in the summer for Sunday picnics cause we didn’t have a
    car back then. I’m so glad your you guys were apart of my growing up. It was a
    Wonderful Neighborhood and every time I make an Egg and Olive Sandwich I
    think of Betty. Will be missed buy so many. Love you All.
