Betty was a good friend and wonderful neighbor. Thanks to the support of you (her family), she was able to spend most of her time at home. This was very important to her and she told Judy & I often how much her family did to make this possible. We got a new pup about 5 years ago and when it came time to come up with a name, Betty wanted it to be 'Elvis' due to his thick, black hair and her fondness of Mr. Presley. We eventually decided on 'Munki' but that Betty could call him 'Elvis' on our visits (which she always did). She was very proud of her family and shared many memories with us. Always kept us up to date on Kaitlyn's golfing news and I will be keeping an eye out for Kaitlyn to show up on a college team and then maybe even the LPGA.
Betty had a lot of pain and discomfort in her last years and at least now she can be at peace. We will miss her.
