Obituary for Connor Stephen Betts

Stephen and Moira Betts apologize that the wording of the obituary for their son Connor was insensitive in not acknowledging the terrible tragedy that he created. In their grief, they presented the son that they knew, which in no way reduces the horror of his last act. We are deeply sorry.

Mr. and Mrs. Betts,
You have the right to remember your children as YOUR CHILDREN, the children you raised and love. We all have something in our lives we regret and no one with a caring heart wants to read that in our obit. Everyone has a right to put what they want in the one they write as well. My daughter has drug issues and if the need comes for an obit for her I will write of the demon controlling her but I definitely would also write of how I remember her and how much I love her. I tell her story to kids at schools and I paint the ugly with the pretty. The students understand I am using her story in hopes of prevention of addiction for them. They also see the hurt I have and understand that I have and always will love my daughter. Don't let anyone take that from you. If there is knowledge you gain from this experience and you are able, share it when you can in the hopes of helping other parents that may be experiencing what you all went thru. I have no knowledge of what you all have experienced but I can tell you I have learned from my daughters journey that so far has landed her in prison. It, of course, is not over but I share what I have seen and learned thru her addiction and actions. I pray for you both to find peace, hope and forgiveness. Please take care of you.

You should not have to apologize for your tribute to your son! You were right not putting that in his obituary... I have not seen other obituaries where people listed things they didn’t do right in their lives! My heart breaks for you loosing your children. I pray you have peace and pray you will find comfort in knowing you will see them again one day! Thoughts and prayers for you and your family.

You should never apologize for how you remember your child, you had no control over his actions nor know why. You lost 2 children & sorrow in the community. Do not punish yourselves but pray to God for peace. Prayers.

My heart aches for your family, even as weeks have passed since the horrible tragedy that took both of your children from you. I can’t imagine the grief you must be experiencing but I truly hope you are surrounded by love and that you don’t blame yourselves for what happened. I’m not religious but I hope you can find peace in whatever beliefs you follow.
I think it’s such a shame that others can’t allow you to grieve the son you raised and loved, as you knew him. I have a baby boy myself and I just can’t imagine what you are going through, but please know I’m sending my love to your family all the way from Reno,NV and I really think you seem like wonderful parents and I’m so sorry this happened to Connor and to Megan.
With Love, Ashley
