Betty Adams was a wonderful asset to Southside High School where I taught for 25 years. I remember her ready smile and how sweet and helpful she was. She was one of my favorite members of the staff and I enjoyed running into her after we both had retired. I remember too how fondly she spoke of Carl.... she was such a nice person.

Betty Lou was a wonderful person. I have great memories of spending a lot of time at her home when Carla and I were growing up. Betty Lou and Carl were very good friend with my parents and there was a lot of bridge playing and laughter among the four of them. I am so sorry for the family's loss but I know Betty Lou is in Heaven and she is at peace and so happy to see The Lord and her wonderful husband. God Bless. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
