I am so sorry to hear of Betty's passing. A flood of memories came back to me having lived next door all those years on First Street. I still make Mrs. Stokes's wonderful lasagna. Betty passed her recipe on to me and it has become a family favorite! I cannot pay my respects as I keep safe so I pass nothing onto my daughter Jessica, who is disabled in Erie. All of you are in my thoughts and prayers. Linda
