Betty Faye and I grew up like sisters right down the road from each other in Smackover. We would eat together and play together all day until dark. At the end of the day, Betty Faye would always cry to spend the night and beg Mrs. Helen to let her stay. Many days, I would cry and beg my mother to spend the night with Betty Faye. We were very close, like sisters. I am extending my condolences from my family to yours in your time of bereavement. We all loved Betty Faye, but God loved her best. Rest on my sister.

This comes from my my family from St.Louis,mo. I was in Texas two weeks and made the attempt to reach out to Betty Faye but was not successful then on valentines days with my wife i received the news. What really is hard for me the week before i talked to my cuz and once again i told him i would make the try to see him later on by 6pm. When i got home and settled the next week he passed. Because God is so good he helps me to ease thru with it. Both Betty Faye and George Bell will be missed. The best part Jesus is still in control. It is okay to cry God will turn them in to happy tears. lets keep Charmine and Veronica in our prayers. My mother niece (Rodessa Norful) will be able to talk to each other once again in heaven. May God continue to heal you during the loss of Betty Faye Walker. With Gods grace Steve B. Norful

We grew up in Smackover, a small town in Arkansas. We lived in a rural area off of Lisbon Rd. The Reed Family lived on top of one hill and our family (Ross Family) lived on the top of another hill.
Our families enjoyed playing games, competing in sports, laughing, eating, and hanging out together. Instead of two families we became one.
Betty Faye was older than me but I loved hearing my Uncle Richard tell about all the adventures they had. Her name always brought a smile to his face.
Rest in Peace Sweet Lady

Betty Fay and I grew up in Smackover, AR. She and I were cousins and often attended the family reunions.
Even though I have not seen her in a while , I remember her infectious smile.
My condolences and heartfelt sympathy to the family.
