Oh, I have slipped the surly bounds of the Earth

And danced the skies on laughter silvered wings

While with the silent lifting mind I’ve trod

The high untrespassed sanctity of space

Put out my hand and touched the face of God


Mrs. Betty passed away Thursday, August 8, 2019 after a short illness with her family by her side.
