Miss Betty was not only a resident but she was a friend. I met her in 2010 as I was the activity director at Big Elm. Sometimes we laughed so hard and one day we were getting ready for an outing and she asked before we left, "Do you think I should take a brief for you just in case you laugh too hard." Wow! She really knew me! She enjoyed helping out with activities and tried to include everyone. We started a Red Hat Club of our own at Big Elm and she and the ladies felt that "Shady Ladies" fit well as a name. LOL! Yeah it did because they were always in competition with each other. She and Miss Bertie (another resident) always prayed with me. When I left Big Elm due to illness in my family at the time, she came to me and said, "Would you stay if I can get them to give you more money?" I am still not sure how she was going to accomplish that but of course I explained I could not do that. I said my goodbyes after sharing Jesus Christ with her family (they prob thought I was crazy) and she crossed over Jordan shortly after I left. Today, as I was cleaning up after an activity I picked up the drop cloth I was using, one I had used at Big Elm, and on it was written, "Lorry, I love you and will miss you, Miss Betty E." I broke down and cried. To her family, I know you will miss her because I do this very second. We prayed for you at church yesterday and I will continuously keep you in my prayers. I am grateful for the days we had left together at Avante celebrating life. She had a lot of fun those last days. "Go Rest High on that Mountain Miss Betty!"
