Betty Gooding ... a quiet, kind hero. Always in the background ... selflessly doing, supporting, caring for those she loved. Never expecting anything in return. A special human being indeed and with her place in heaven secured. May she rest in peace.

With love and gratitude for having had her as part of our family through Patrick,

The Scotts
Kathleen (Patrick's sister), her children Sandra, Mark and Lisa and their respective families
