My Sister

This week's blog post is a sad one. The beautiful lady whose picture is attached is my sister, Betti. She died Friday, of complications from COPD, at the age of 73. Betti was a vibrant, athletic girl, who probably played more golf than any of her siblings. Her freshman year of college, she took up smoking. It developed into an addiction, which robbed her of so many things.

Given our family genetics, she should have been playing vigorous golf well in to her eighties.....but she smoked.

She should have seen her granddaughters grow up, get married and have children....but she smoked.

She should have been able to enjoy a good night's sleep, smell flowers, taste good food, not have to fight for every breath...but she smoked.

Please don't let this happen to you, or anyone you care about.

God bless,

Joe 
Sister
