May the Lord bless Mrs. Betty's family and friends with peace and comfort. May you have the best of memories.
Mrs. Betty was such a sweet and lively lady with a great sense of humor. She loved her family deeply.
I was privileged to meet her when she let Tonya, her granddaughter style her hair in Beautiful School. She didn't mind being a Guinea piglet for a good cause.
God has called another one of His Angels back to heaven. May she rest in peace.
