Being Betty’s hairdresser for over thirty years I learned so much from Betty, learned what commitment really means, her conversations were always uplifting and great life experiences, Betty's family was her purpose being so proud of each one of her children, never spoke a negative word about anyone, I will truly miss Betty and I will cherish our memories forever. My sweet friend, may you Rest In Peace, I love you Betty, your again in your loving husbands arms.

I have the best memories of hanging out at Betty’s beach cabin with Beki. Betty was the sweetest person and the absolute best cook I ever knew.
Thinking of you Beki ❤️
