Dear Sheila, Lora, Carla, and all the family, Please accept my heartfelt sympathy. When my Mom died in 2001 I remember reading this maybe you know of it. I AM STANDING UPON THE SEASHORE. A SHIP AT MY SIDE SPREADS HER WHITE SAILS TO THE MORNING BREEZE AND STARTS FOR THE BLUE OCEAN. SHE IS AN OBJECT OF BEAUTY AND STRENGTH. I STAND AND WATCH HER UNTIL AT LENGTH SHE HANGS LIKE A SPECK OF WHITE CLOUD JUST WHERE THE SEA AND SKY COME TO MINGLE WITH EACH OTHER. THEN SOMEONE AT MY SIDE SAYS: THERE SHE IS GONE! GONE WHERE? GONE FROM MY SIGHT. THAT IS ALL. SHE IS JUST AS LARGE IN MAST AND HULL AND SPAR AS SHE WAS WHEN SHE LEFT MY SIDE AND SHE IS JUST AS ABLE TO BEAR HER LOAD OF LIVING FREIGHT TO HER DESTINED PORT. HER DIMINISHED SIZE IS IN ME, NOT IN HER. AND JUST AT THE MOMENT WHEN SOMEONE AT MY SIDE SAYS: THERE SHE IS GONE! THERE ARE OTHER EYES WATCHING HER COMING, AND OTHER VOICES READY TO TAKE UP THE GLAD SHOUT: HERE SHE COMES!!!! Love to you all,, your friend Betty Fernburg

On Thursday April 15th, 2010, a very near and dear friend who to some of us who knew her as Betty or Libby passed from this life onward to another life far removed from this one. It has been said that it is not what you take with you but what you leave behind that matters the most. In the case of Betty's passing, I personally know this to be true. I know that I have been blessed to have known her and grew up with her being one of my closest and dearest influences of my childhood. Betty always had time for me, and would encourage me when I was down or in a rut. She was a giving and gentle soul. She was a woman driven and guided by her own convictions. Strong willed, and determined. She was always concerned about others and was willing to help if the need should arise. I personally believe that there is not one person who ever lived in Orviston from the age of 60 to 1 that has not ever met and been touched or influenced in some way by Betty. I moved out of Orviston when I was 16 yrs old, went into the Army full time for several years, but when I came home on leave and went to visit family in Orviston, that family always included Betty at the top of the list. The same was done anytime I entered Orviston. I was 14 yrs. old when I first learned that yes in fact Betty is a cousin of mine through blood, but Betty was all that much more "Family" to all of us who grew up there, bloodline or not. I had the pleasure of visiting Betty a few times while being "in town" visiting my Aunts Bonnie and Phyllis, who live across the street from Betty. She was sick at times and weak, but tried hard not to show it. The thing that stands out for me most is that she did not want to talk about her, but was concerned with me and my family and how they all were doing. It was always somebody else before her. There are so many things I can and want to say to memorialize her, but I will end with this. For some unknown reason, as a child, very young, I would call Betty "the witch" and would cry when she would come near me. I nor nobody else could ever figure out just why, but I stopped around age 7 and just as mysteriously, I gravitated to her. I can honestly say now how wrong I was to call her "the witch", when in fact, she was "an Angel"! May God wrap you in his loving arms and welcome you home and may you kiss and embrace your precious Grandchildren Carey Jo and Jeremy as well as reunite and walk hand and hand with Roy in Heaven. Thank you for your kindness, love, and friendship. I love you Betty, Denny
