There was a time in my life where I was blessed to call Betty Mom. Many happy memories were made but one in particular has always stood out for me and Id like to share it with you all now.
Betty had always been a woman of many talents and one year she decided to try her hand at a new one: knitting. She became very good at it and decided to knit presents for members of the family. To my daughter Karla, who was 3 or 4 at the time, she gave a knitted Christmas stocking. It was beautiful and had Karlas name knitted on the front. With each passing year that stocking has stretched and grown, and has become the biggest longest stocking on the mantle.
Just like the stocking, Bettys love has stretched and grown to cover any one she meets. She was a lady of grace and poise and I have always counted myself lucky to be a part of her family.
She will be missed......Pamela Bain, mother of Karla Blohm
