Betty was my Aunt through marriage and was the sweetest and kindest woman ever!! She will be missed! May she now rest as she travels on to meet her Dear Lord and Saviour. We are now praying for Dear Uncle George as he goes through this sad time. They were one of the closest couples I know. God be with the family during this time of their loss. Love you all, James and Elouise Summers
