I knew Jewell from Garber Methodist in New Bern. She had been on our Bible Study prayer list for some time. She was a sweet lady. Jean Huryn

Rest in peace sweet cousin. It was always a thrill when you and Joe and the kids came to visit us in LaGrange (a long time ago)
I am so glad I got to see both of you in recent years.
Love from Alan Cason (Betty's son)
