Just talked to your mom last week. I am so happy that I did.
I will never forget all the good times we had at St Clair Travel. I am glad that we remained friends through all these years and were able to get together from time to time. I will never forget Betty Linn. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Soon, growing old and death will be eliminated forever according to God’s Word. (Revelation 21:3, 4) May friends and family be a source of comfort too, and may you view our website for more comforting Bible answers, (jw.org).

Betty Linn was a very special lady. I always think of her as my mentor, as she was my first manager in the travel industry. I am so sorry for your loss. You have my deepest sympathy.

Tom and Judy, may you find peace and know that Betz is probably going out with Nick, Marcelyn, John, Bernie, and Manring. They are all going home now. It was wonderful knowing her, her determination, and her love of life and family. God bless you all.

I first met Betty Linn in 1976 when I took a two-week vacation to Hawaii with a local group she sponsored. I enjoyed the trip so much, I moved to Honolulu the following year for the start of a 36-year working vacation across the western United States before retiring back to this area in 2013.
Betty’s family and I remained friends during that period every time I returned to visit my parents who lived in Bellaire.
May God grant Betty’s the strength to overcome her loss and give her peace as she reunites with her husband in Heaven. Farewell, Betty. I will never forget you.
