  1. I missed out on so much with her.
    I missed her alot before and will miss her so much more now.
    No one told me, tough way to find out.
    She knew how much I loved her.

  2. I will miss my mother so much. She was a loving, kind, and caring person. I was so blessed to have her as a mother. I am so glad that she knew I loved her and cared for her deeply and that I was able to be with her and spend such quality time with her. The laughs and love will never be forgotten. She was special.

  3. Betty crisp is my grandmother. Her son Dewayne warren crisp was my father. He passed when I was two years of age. Doing a little family research and came across this. I knew Betty had sisters and other family in New York. God rest her soul. And interested in finding out more about my relatives in Oswego.
