    Tiffany and family,

    Sonja and I were saddened by the news of Betty Jeans passing last week. I know that your Mom was an inspiration to you, the rest of the family, and surely to the community of Stratford. I pray you find peace during this difficult time.
    Sonja and I very much regret that we are not able to attend the services on Thursday, but please know that we will lift up all those in attendance, family and friends, as you remember the life of a person who was such a strong guide to so many.

    With love,

    Michael, Sonja, Elena, Alyssa Conoly
