Kevin, David, Garry and your family: We are very sorry about your lovely mother who past away. Best wish to you and your family and our thoughts are with you all during this most difficult time. Han X Xiao & Gloria

So sorry to hear of the passing of both Betty Ann and Ed. I last saw them in 2009 in Canada at Bill and Nedra's anniversary party. I loved their ready smiles and great senses of humor. We exchanged Christmas cards for many years. Always enjoyed seeing them at family gatherings. I would be a cousin, Ercell's oldest granddaughter, and my mother Jenny was very close to both Betty Ann and Marylyn in her youth in Taylor. Again, my heartfelt sympathies, Terri Boehm, Port Huron, Michigan Terri Boehm
