Bill and Connie, Steve and I send our thoughts and prayers for your comfort. We have such good memories of living next door to Miss Betty in Thomson. I would look for her sitting in her breakfast nook to know if she was home! We enjoyed talking about birds and gardening and catching up on each other's family. She was proud of both of her sons and the granddaughters! Love to you all.

Knowing Betty from a very early age, she was one of the sweetest ladies I've known. After growing up and leaving the nest, anytime I would run into her at church or any other location, she would always give me a lipstick kiss on my cheek. I'll always remember that. Thoughts and prayers in this difficult time.

Ms. Betty was a client at our salon for a couple of years when she lived in Thomson, GA. She was a brilliant, funny, gracious lady. I looked forward to her appointments with my coworker, Tammy Lockhart, just to hear her anecdotes, and any advice that she would impart. I was sorry to hear that she was moving back home, but I feel privileged to have gotten to know her. God bless the family with peace & comfort.

I was only in her presence a few times, but when I was it was very easy to see that she "loved life" and certainly "loved her boys" !!! 💝
