    • Email from Betsy Faris 26 April 2006:

      Below is the obituary read at Granny's funeral. I had to take out the parts about her nieces and nephews for the paper. Even with me paying an outrageous amount I was still limited to what I could and could not say. I also had to change some of the wording so that there wasn't so many of them.
