  1. My sympathy to the Love family. Betty was a good friend. We had great times at the Bowling Alley, years ago. May God Bless you in your time of Mourning ……

  2. Bruce & Laurie and to your families –
    Momma Love taught us many things in her life, but the thing I think of first about her is unconditional love. Oh, she would be upset, angered or even disappointed sometimes, but never ever stopped showing you a mothers love. Betty, or Mom, you are at peace now and I couldn’t be happier for you. You know we love you, and will miss you a lot. Continue your vigilant watch over your family and friends until we can once again be with you. All our love always –
    Craig
