Betty was a beautiful, quite spoken lady who has been a big part of my life. I have so many fun memories growing up with her children spending a lot of time in their home. I have always considered them as my chosen family and thankful they let me a part of theirs.
Betty, you are missed but you will remain in my heart until we meet again.

With Love,
