Betty was the sister of my sister-in-law, Linda Pettis. She was such a sweet sweet lady. I remember my Junior prom. It was 1966, and Betty was spending time with her sister and my brother, and we couldn't afford for me to go to hair salon to have my hair done so Betty does my hair for the prom, and I do believe my hair was prettier than any body else's there. I will always remember that and I was just as proud of that hairdo as if I had gone to the finest hair salon in town.😍😍Rest In Peace Betty
I love you.
