    I have such fond memories of Aunt Betty! We spent a lot of time at her house for Hendrix family gatherings. She always made her special cupcake brownies for us to enjoy. Blessings and prayers to Karen and Sharon and their families during this difficult time.

    Aunt Betty was as much our aunt as the Hendrix kids, especially since we lived in Ashland. One of my fondest memories was playing for her wedding to Robby. Betty was always so glad to see us when we came back to Ashland and such a good friend to our mom. She was proud of all of us, just like we were her own. Prayers from the Anderson kids to the Hendrix and Robinson kids. I am not sure I can be there because of staff shortages from holiday time off and the weather forcast. We love ypu all.

    Karen & Roger, Sharon & Mike, my heart is with you & your families today, I have nothing, but great memories, of coming to Ashland & staying at your mom & dad’s, hanging out at Lanoma Beach ( your dad took me up in the light house, that was cool), staying at the cabin & fishing with the guys on the Platte River! Your mom, aunt Betty, was a peach, I’ll always remember her voice & her laugh! I’ll miss her for awhile, until I see her again in Heaven! Love you guys! Hugs to you & your families! I’m heading to Racine Wisconsin, to Have Christmas with my son Chase & family, then going to Indy, to be with my daughter Kari & family.
    I’m so sorry, I can’t be there! Hugs to you all, yeah even you Roger! Please give my love to all our family, you’re all in my prayers, love Jim
