Jim,

Bettie was a good friend of my mom’s. We have known you and Bettie for years. When I went to the ladies dinners, I was always amazed how much Bettie could eat and stay so little!

Jim, one thing you and your mom have in common is you both are always smiling and have a positive attitude!!!

We will miss Bettie, but we know she will be welcomed in Heaven.

Love, Dan and Joy
