Van Werth was my very good friend. I feel so fortunate that I knew her...she was without question an angel on earth. She was such a remarkably nice woman, but she did have a competitive streak and hated to lose on the golf course. The strongest word she ever said, however, was DARN. In all the many, many years I knew her I never heard Van say one bad word about another person. Today I attended Van's memorial service and remembered her pretty laugh, her homemade sweet pickles and what a wonderful person she was.
