Rest in peace Aunt Betty. You've been a blessing to the Carter family. You and Uncle Max were a large part of my life and I'll never forget all that the two of you did for me. Your love, kindness and giving spirit have touched many lives. My wife and I miss you as much as we've missed Uncle Max. You'll never be forgotten. I'm glad the last time we were able to bring you to our home you were able to laugh for many hours as we told many stories of times gone by. That was a great day. Michelle and I love you!
