To the family of Anna E. "Betty" Jackson,
I just wanted to drop a line of heart felt sympathy for your loss. These are times that bring families together and make them stronger. You do not know me and neither did Betty, but we are 1st cousins a few times removed. My mother (she was a Scrafford) kept up on all the relatives which is how I discovered the connection when I read the newspaper yesterday. I only have one immediate family member left and it is nice to know that there are others out there.
Sincerely and respectfully,
Leah S. Givler
