Lorna, Fiona & Andrew your mom was beautiful woman she came into our lives years ago when she lived in Bath. My mom always called her Scotty Betty and loved her visits when she would come to our home with Harold so I know that all of them are having a great time in heaven and knowing that they are all pain free and watching over us all. She will be missed . Our thoughts and prayers are with you all . Karen and Thomas Houston

Lorna,
My heart goes out to you and your family during these difficult days.
Your mom was an amazing lady and brought so much joy to everyone she crossed paths with. She was definitely a bright light in my world and I was truly blessed to have had her in my life. Betty was so thoughtful, bringing me Scotch mints every time I had a sore throat. I will miss my dancing partner so much and think of her often. Embrace the memories and photos of happier times they will help you remember all the good times you had together.
HUGS!!

Lorna,
My thoughts go out to you and your family during these difficult days. Your mom was such a bright light and beautiful lady. She brightened up many days for me with her big smile and her thoughtful gifts of mints when i had a sore throat. She will always have a special place in my heart. I'll never have a dance partner as good as her. Keep on dancing Betty. If you need anything don't hesitate to call.
Hugs
