Just found out about Betty and did not know she had been at Williamson Hospice. She can now "call them Hogs" from heaven!

Betty was a beautiful caring woman. I was fortunate to have met her and her sweet husband, Cecil, through my work. Over the years I was always happy to see their kind smiles come into the store. I was also fortunate to be on their list at Christmas time for “Lizzie’s”. Absolutely my favorite Christmas treat ! Thanks, Betty for sharing your life with me through the years and sharing your generous hugs and kind words. I am so saddened for Cecil and your family, I know you treasured them. May God be with you all and give you comfort in your memories. Janie Derden
