  1. Condolences to Aunt Betty and Uncle Jeff’s
    family and friends. I especially remember
    having fun together camping in Colorado
    when we were kids.

    I feel fortunate that Aunt Betty gave me one of her hand painted plates and so enjoy it. Beautiful flowers, clearly she had an artist’s touch.

    I have a memory of her talking about trying to learn from her students how to make fresh tortillas. As I remember mom telling it quite often maybe that is why I remember the story. But the voice and laughter in my memory is Aunt Betty’s. “They said you just pat it Ike this and then pat it like that and there you have it! So I patted it like this and patted it like that…and it was awful!”.
