The photo of my wonderful Aunt Bettie is how I remember her. She was a beauty with the most striking, happy eyes and a heart always open and filled with love and compassion. God Blessed her with an optimistic and encouraging outlook, and when you were near Aunt Bettie the joy within her always lifted you up.
I thank God for enabling me to be so close to Aunt Bettie, Uncle Bill, and the McCourts from infancy throughout my life. She was an Angel, and just saying her name will bring a smile to your face.
May this very special Lady Rest in Peace.
