Wendy and family, I'm so very sorry to hear about your Mom's passing. She is now with her husband, daughter and grandson and all those she loved that have gone before her. I remember that she was a very sweet lady. May your memories help you through the dark days ahead and may God wrap his arms around you and guide you through this very difficult time. May she rest in eternal peace.

Bette was also a classmate of mine. Although I left Stoughton to join the service I lost track of many of my classmates however I was fortunate to become reaquainted with Bette through her good friends on the reunion committee. We leave High School as classmates and friends. We go our individual ways in life yet somehow we manage to meet again as we depart on another life. Rest in peace Bette. We will have many more reunions and you save the first dance for me.

Bette was a year ahead of Mike and I at SHS. All classes there were pretty small compared to what they are now so we all knew each other very well. We all pretty much grew up together from the first grade on. Many great teachers back in the day too---a couple were a bit tough on us but we survived! Now those of us still here are officially senior citizens and sad we have had to say goodby to so many old friends.

She was one of the nicest, kindest people I have ever met. We enjoyed talking gardening, and our lunches with our classmates

Bette and I were classmates at SHS and dear friends and members of our luncheon group, Club 53 class of 1953. I will miss my dear friend but I know that now she's in a better place with Paul and family and friends
