I remember when Betty was in SMU and her sorority wanted to create a float for a football game against Arkansas: a huge meat grinder with a razorback being pushed in! She called Mom because of her connection to Owens Country Sausage to ask if she would ask the Owenses if they had any type of prop that might work. Or if they would want to sponsor the float. I don't think that materialized, but it was a cute idea. And I remember when Betty used Contact Paper as kitchen wallpaper... it was a fad when she married. As I recall it worked pretty well except for one spot, which she pressed on every time she walked past. And I remember the Easter she and Amye made a bunny cake. So many sweet memories. She encouraged me as a pianist. She inspired me to study in France. I was lucky to be her cousin. Rest in peace, dear one.
