I had the privilege to meet & see Betty for occupational therapy while she was at RMH. I only knew her for that short while, but was certainly able to see what a dear lady she was! My thoughts & prayers are with your family.

I remember Betty Ann from Montevideo. We were in the same class, 1957. I am sorry to know that she's gone from this life. I can tell that she was a wonderful mother to her children. Please know that I'm thinking and praying for all of you. Frances Harnsberger Swope, Sebring, FL

Ricky,Terry,Robbie and Stacy and families,
You are in my thoughts and prayers. I was sad to hear of your mom's passing. I always loved your mom. I had so much fun with her that night when we went to see Lee Greenwood. May you find peace in the days ahead.
