I worked with Betty at the SBA for many years. Loved her sense of humor; especially her way of looking at things! Way different perspective but always with a lesson. Her roses were GORGEOUS too! Since they moved our offices a while back, I hadn't seen Betty, but I did miss talking and joking with her. May she rest in peace.
