We have been friends of the family for 45 years. Our children thought of Shorty and Bette
as their aunt and uncle. We will miss her and will always cherish our friendship and love for the two of them.

During the last two months, my brothers Jim, Scott and I have lost the last of our 2nd generation relatives: Uncle Roger Evans, Uncle Shorty and now Aunt Betty Clements. How uncanny to lose all three within such a short time. What we have not lost are the memories which will live in our hearts forever. Believe me when I say, there are so many.
