Betty was one of my favorites at the Acushnet Wesley United Methodist Church. I would go over and visit her on my motor scooter where we would sit at her kitchen table and watch the cows. Sometimes I would go over and watch the Patriots game with her. When she knew I was coming, she would bake some kind of apple tart. I will never forget the love and devotion she had for her brother Henry. When he was in the nursing home, she would bring over a coffee frappe and they would watch the football game together. She had a deep love for all of her brothers and sisters. I last spoke to Betty on Christmas Eve and we reminisced about her life.

I don't know what I'll do without Betty-she was like my 2nd mom. She was my mother's best friend where they both worked at the Acushnet Process & mine. Even though I live in Florida I talked to Betty constantly. Her advise was always spot on & her love for Tom Brady & the Patroits knew no bounds. She loved her football. In fact as an infant she took me to see semi-pro ball where I used to live (Acushnet). I'll miss her everyday.
