Betty L. Yeargin,
The smile of the most heart-felt, and cheerful souls. The one that touched us all in the warm place of our hearts. With open arms and a place to stay. Jokes and laughs, to secrets and mischief. This beautiful woman knew how to get anyone rolling. I will always remember our secrets and dark jokes set aside. More importantly, I will never forget the love you gave anyone who came around. You still make my heart happy. Just thinking about how much we laughed and joked around. There's just so much to say, but with being so close to me and others. I'm sure we don't have to say anything. You already know how heavy our hearts are with things we want to say. If there's one thing. There is this..For in my life. I will live for the name of the woman that was a big inspiration to be the man I am today. I will always hold you close to me. Especially that laugh. I love you Nanny. Keep those people in line up there.

Jackie (and all the family): Betty had many great qualities but what I will always remember was her compassion for others and her wit. What you saw was what you got, always true and not fake. Once befriended you were a friend for life. With a heavy heart I send condolences to all the family. May God wrap His arms around you and bring you all comfort as only He can do. May the Lord bless and keep you and make His light shine upon you and bring you Peace. Hopefully, our mamas will run into each other in Heaven. Love to all.

My sister. What can I say. She was one of the strongest toughest sweetheart of a woman I have ever known. Loved spending my summers with her. But the best memory is her taking time from her home her life her family to come and take care of our mom. She knew we had to work and she was able to do that. And oh what great care and love she gave mom. Betty i will miss you forever. My heart is broken that they will be no more memories to make. But i will cherish all the ones i have. Will carry you in my heart always. Love your baby sister Karen.
