Betty, you were a good lady, and will be sorely missed by your family and loved ones. My condolences to my Texas family.

Marcy, Wade, Ryan, Katie, Brady and family we are so sorry for your loss. We can only pray you are somewhat comforted by knowing Betty lived to see her remaining children and grandchildren grow to be so happy and successful, and that she welcomed great-grandchildren into the world. May her memory be eternal. All our love and prayers - Nick, Kim, Stephanie, Samantha and Wade Karam
