Goodbye Betty Winkler, my friend, my sister, my mentor, “maggie companion,” and confidant for 40+ years. I loved you then as I love you still…and I will always miss you, your sense of style, and certainly, your warm, loving chuckle and sense of humor. I am blessed to have known you, to have been a part of your life, and to have memories of YOU to last a lifetime.

Farewell, my friend. I know you are in a far better place now, and I look forward to when that thought brings me solace, comfort, and peace.

Your spirit lives on within my heart…

      Of all the messages you have entered, present and/or past, this is by far the most emotional and important to me, my very [very] best bud…thank you for your compassionate understanding of how very, very important Betty was to me…and why. While I am truly blessed to “have so many friends close by to help” me [through this incredible feeling of such a significant loss], your love and support from so far away (as my best bud) “sooth the wounds,” for lack of a better description for now. Thank you, Patty. (I am not rereading this so if there are typing errors, etc., so be it.)
