This morning I received a call that the kindest woman I ever knew took her last breath to run into the arms of Jesus. Grandma taught me my first song on the piano, she watched me every day after school and always made me the best snicker-doodles the world ever did taste (I still blame her for my love handles). She was quiet and gentle, but also knew how to be the woman in charge. She loved Burger King (still don’t get that one) and was a true southern lady. She stood by my Papa’s side for 68 years of her 87 year life, and they have been the running definition of love for our family. She is no longer suffering and riding on the wings of angels. I could go on and on, but for now, I honor the incredible woman that she was. In her hallucinated state the other day she started telling the nurse, “Michael, get with the program,” to which I’ll take as her last request of me. I’ll do my best, Grandma. Thank you. I’ll love you forever and can’t wait to see you again.

Yesterday the most beautiful person I know went to be with Jesus. Grandma I’ve been trying to find the right words to say just how much you mean to me but no amount of words could ever describe the impact you’ve had on my life and the incredible woman you are. I’m sorry I couldn’t be there to take care of you, but I’m thankful you aren’t in pain anymore and are finally at peace. In your short 87 years on this earth you touched more people than you could ever imagine. You have the purest heart of anyone I’ve ever known and I pray one day I can become half of the woman you are, thankfully I inherited your quick wit😉I was the ONLY grandchild named after you and that I will cherish forever🥰She loved the Lord, her family, Schwan’s, Burger King, baking and her dog Sugar (she stole her from my mother). Even with her Alzheimer’s her gentle soul never faded, nor did her comebacks at Papa, she filled the room with warmth and her calming spirit. Growing up next door to you was a blessing most grandchildren don’t get. Not because you would make me something to eat at any hour of the day (usually sausage, egg and cheese sandwiches) or the fact that until I moved out on my own I would bring you my laundry and you’d wash it without hesitation, although these are memories I’ll cherish forever, the bond we made is one that can never be replaced. You stood by my Papa’s side for 68 years, survived the snoring and smiled at every ice shake from his empty glass. As my wise brother stated you both have been the running definition of love for our family. I can’t begin to thank you for all that you’ve done for me and taught me over the years. I will miss you more than you know and will keep you with me always. I can’t wait to be with you again!
I love you Betty Lou❣️

I remember standing beside that piano as Aunt Betty would play it and we would sing those gospel songs. You could just see the joy and happiness in her heart and eyes. She had a never failing love for all of her family and we all loved her.
Her life is a good example of one who chooses early in life to live a life close to God. His promises were fulfilled. She was blessed with a secure and happy life and a great family.
I pray that God blesses and strengthens all of you at this time.

Nameen, Barbara, Royce and family,
I feel so blessed to have had the presence of Betty in our life. While the time we spent together was not a life time, It sure felt like it. I never thought I would meet a sweeter woman in my life when I met Ruth, and then I met Betty. Both so sweet, kind, loving and Godly. The letters that these two sisters exchanged for all those many years became what Ruth looked so forward to. When cleaning out her belonging we found every letter that Betty had written Ruth stored away in her closet...such a special relationship for two beautiful sisters. My life was blessed by having known Aunt Betty. WE will cherish her memory.
We love you,
The Kenneth Wright Family
