    To the beloved family of Aunt Betty. We have so many fond memories of when we would gather at the Kern’s house and Betty would be there. She always brought her Sunshine Smile with her. She never seemed to be without it. Her smile exuded the love within her heart. She will always be remembered as a warm, loving and compassionate woman. Our prayers are with you all as you go through this time. May God bless you all. Love, Eileen and Randy Lamb and family
