Memories Timeline


  1. Nancy Temple says:

    I met Bette 18 years ago in Italy. Our church was having a pilgrimage and she and Jack sat by us on the bus and at dinner. She would always call me Sally. I didn’t want to make her feel bad, so I just went by Sally. On our last night in Rome, we were having dinner and one of our group came up and said, “Nancy will you take our picture?” Bette, goes, “Whose Nancy?” I finally admitted that was my name and we have had been good friends ever since. I’ll miss my dear friend Bette.
