Dear Graeme,John, Helen, Charles , Kristen, my loving thoughts are with you all on the loss of Betty. She was a lovely lady. May God bless you all. Love from Christine ( Smith) Caldwell.xox
A special loved elder sister who loved and served her Lord. Betty has fought the good fight, she has finished her race, and has remained faithful. And now the prize awaits her -the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give her . . .
(see 2 Timothy 4:6-8)

I was saddened to hear of Betty’s death earlier this year. Much water has gone under the bridge since I last saw you. Yoka and my marriage broke up in 1980 and she took the kids to the Blue Mountains, so I had them every school holidays. I was chaplain to Toorak College at the time. I had a number of years on my own and then I married Sue McCall which lasted for ten years as she went off with another guy in 1992. I then married Catherine, the daughter of a Presbyterian minister and we were married for 25 years, and unfortunately she died last October of brain cancer. I have spent most of my ministry in school chaplaincy, first at Ballarat High, then Toorak College, the St Leonards College and then Wesley College in Melbourne. I became a Uniting Church minister in 1993. My mum Pris died 7years in Adelaide.
Anyway Graeme Blessings from an old mate. Peter Burnham
