  • Anita Trevino Neubarth - Thank you Jeff and Betsy. You certainly pulled us out of our comfort zone. Pics are not my favorite thing in the world, but you both helped Ray and I open up to the whole experience.

    Looking at these pictures take us back to those moments of fun and laughter. And it is true, after 26 years it’s rare to take that much time to just focus on us…no pun intended!

    I immediately e-mailed this blog to Sara and Codie with the hope that they will enjoy seeing their parents having fun.

    Thanks again. Anita and Ray

  • Teresa Gacnik - I absolutely LOVED the pictures. It brought tears to my eyes to see my sister spend some energy on creating beautiful memories for her and her family. Thank you, Betsy for encouraging Anita and bringing out her overall beauty and capturing it on film. Thank you also for bringing out the love and companionship that Anita and Ray have for and with each other. Beautiful!

  • Shawn Grant - Love these pics Jeff and Betsy!! Great job! My fav is the one of them sitting on the bench! 🙂

Randolph and Betsy were both political powerhouses in student government at UCSD, which is where I imagine she learned the ability to justify virtually ANYTHING. 🙂 Betsy spends a lot of time on Facebook, which has been such a great way to reconnect with old friends. Isn’t it cool when you see people after so […]
