Jean Elizabeth (nee) Holmes Aunt Betty

In grace she walked,
Abundant love she shared
Her heart brought joy
To those who cared.

We envision her being raised up
By loving arms of the many she loved
We know they embrace and welcome her
With joyous laughter above.

Even so, she has not totally left us
Just take a moment to look
You will find her dimple in a small smiling face.
See her wisdom in an adult child's eyes.

Her grace can be found in a dancer's steps
Her loving warmth found in each shared hug
Her beauty in all those she left behind
Her strength when you are in need.

We shall forever remember her.
Until our time too comes
Comforted in knowing she walks ahead
Her light guiding our way after our run.

To the Holmes family; May God be with all of you and bring peace knowing that this wonderful woman was dearly loved and had a everlasting family of love!
I knew her as a kid growing up and she was just as much as a Mother as most of our own in the neighborhood.
She was a caring soul who cared so much about kids and family, and everyone knew it.

Our deepest sympathy to all, God Bless!
Skip, Chris and Holly Cusick
