  7. To our dear sister, sister-in-law, and Aunty Betty

    We have lost a legend! So loving and selfless to everyone-who is going to fill the void in the many hearts left empty by her passing?
    Never a harsh word. Just love and encouragement. I guess that is all you ever want and she gave it to so many.
    In the words of Shakespeare ” she loved all, trusted a few and did wrong to no one”.

    Love from Martin and Susanne Hession and their family-Anna and Marc, Justin and Ari, Matthew and Sarah, Sarah, Aengus, Liam, Grace, Tom and Ned.

  16. To my dear sister, Susanne’s sister-in -law, and to our children-Aunty Betty.
    We have lost a legend! She truly was a legend in her own lifetime.
    Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for longer and leave footprints in our hearts. And we are never ever the same. Who will fill the void left empty by her passing? Never a harsh word. Just love and encouragement. I guess that is all you ever want and she gave it to so many.
