    Kevin & Brittany: My soul breathes a prayer for you both during this difficult time in this journey of life. My heart will forever hold a place for Betty. A smile comes to my face whenever my eyes behold the beauty of irises in the springtime with the morning dew for these bring me the most precious memories I have of her. "Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know that are happy." Author Unknown
