On 27 September 2015, Betsy’s heart suddenly stopped beating and Scott along with his paramedic friends began CPR, which was successful, but, despite the efforts of them and her team at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, Betsy never regained consciousness. On 2 October 2015, Betsy’s medical team shared that there was no life sustaining brain activity and it was decided by those closest to her (sans her son, Jason, who was incarcerated) to remove life support, let her fly with the angels and fulfill her wish to donate her organs.

Yeah! I’ve been trying to get that picture on here! Today, 60 years ago, you joined us on earth and I celebrate you! My heart misses you terribly. I like to think that we would have had a grand celebration for your milestone by traveling somewhere warm and sunny. It would have been your choice, but, I would have recommended that we meet Lucy at her home in Leesburg, Florida. Maybe that would have been enough, but, I would love to take you on a cruise through the Caribbean. You would have loved the warm sand, blue waters and sun on your face. Sadly, I can only dream of that celebration with you and Lucy as I’m left here without either of you now. It is a comfort, sort of, that you’re together with everyone that went before you. I do wish it were otherwise though as I miss you both everyday! I miss your spark and love of life without fear. Where did you get that fearlessness? Lucy had it too, but, she did worry a bit though. I think it comes from the Van Fleet’s as Earl worries about every little thing. Thankfully, I’m not that bad and am working on worrying less, as it is a total waste of energy. I know there are many here that miss you as much if not more than I do. Jason has your ashes and might, someday, have his celebration of you. I’m sad that I had to cut him out of my life. I believe you would understand. I don’t have the ability to dismiss the drama, it eats at me and drags me down. I’m so weak like that. Regardless, I’ll always be sad that my relationship with him couldn’t have met both of our needs. I celebrate you today, on your 60th earthly birthday! I miss you and love you always. B
