My Sweet Aunt Bett
Remember about two years ago I had a post about my Sweet Uncle Joe, well this one is about his wife.My uncle was determined to keep her at home. She had Alzheimer's but she still knew who he was. When he passed away I don't think she even knew it was Joe although her children took her to the funeral home and to his funeral. But maybe she did.
The children were just as determined to keep her at home, if there was any way possible. One of her great-grandchildren came to stay with "Granny" and was her caregiver for the rest of Bett's life. She lived two years and three days after her husband's passing. Her children still came every Sunday to have dinner with Mama. That was something Betty had always done. They took turns cooking and whoever could, came to sit around the table as they had done every Sunday.I'm sure they are going to miss Mama so much. They all said they know Daddy has been waiting by the gate for Mama to get there.
So this post is a tribute to My Sweet Uncle Joe and My Sweet Aunt Betty.
