Dearest Betty will be missed. I always looked forward to seeing her
At church, and she drove herself until just a few months ago! I will especially miss her laugh. I didn't know her well but she was the same age as my own mother. That was a special sweet connection. Thank you Betty for the joy you shared in the short time I knew you. May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
Mary L. Hill.
