This is a tribute to my aunt Ms. Elizabeth Ramsey. My aunt was the type of person who was always to make you smile, pick you up when you were down, have a shoulder for you to cry on, and be your best friend. I was fortunate to have 36 years with you and Simone 5 years. We love you and you will never be forgotten.

Extending heartfelt sympathy to each of you. Betty was a woman of strength and determination. Ours was a friendship with long roots. The photo of her as my maid of honor has a place of permanent display. Precious memories! My prayer is that God's comforting grace will be with you now and in the days ahead.
