I offer my sincere condolences to you, Maurica Heisler, Cassie, and Kelly, and family for your loss. Almost every time I saw Grandma Betty, she would “Pop” me on the forehead with her hand(I likely deserved it), then immediately open her arms out for her hug...She was such a sweet soul; if you wanted an “honest” answer, she was the one to ask. She was very humble, very kind, and it was a true joy and honor to have known her. My continued prayers to the family, as we grieve losing her. There’s an ever present joy and comfort in knowing, she is experiencing now a peace we can only begin to imagine, as she is hand in hand with Christ in Heaven, along with several other loved ones she so longed to see again.
