From the very first time we talked I knew what a sweet woman you were. When you came to my house to visit we talked like we had known each other for years! You reminded me so much of my grandmother that I adopted you as her replacement. George and I will be missing you so very much and we will see each other again in the near future. With much love and sorrow that you left your family and friends. Wish we could had been there.

We''re so sorry and hurting that this beautiful soul has been called home to be with the Lord. My mother was trying to call her today because she had been on our minds so heavy. When the phone said this isn't a working number we knew. Our hearts, thoughts and prayers goes out to the family and friends. She kept my mother motivated when they were in Cumberland rehab. Mrs. Betty you're truly missed. We love you.

I have so many wonderful memories of Aunt Betty Lou some from my childhood days of many family members getting together after church for dinner. I remember her bringing Maxie over when he was a baby , she always dressed him so neatly and put a hat on him . As I got older I moved to Florida where her Uncle Sam Mom ad Dad would come to visit. Then came the Family Reunions where her Aunt Linda, Aunt Joyce and Aunt Brenda would dress up and then Aunt Betty Lou act the auctioneer and sell things what great memories they were. My heart and prayers are with each and everyone of my family during this time, I am asking God to wrap His loving arms around each of you during this time and to bring peace in your hearts. Have a grand time in Heaven Aunt Betty Lou until we have that big family reunion up there. Love and miss you here on earth, save me a spot in Heaven.

Today, not only did I lose my aunt, but I lost a good friend. Aunt Betty and I would get on the phone with each other and we would talk to wee hours of the morning. She and I would get together often and go have lunch together. She loved her chinese food. Everytime I asked her where she wanted to eat, she would always say canton station. I'm so glad that I got to eat dinner with her just a couple weeks ago at miyobi Japanese restaurant. She enjoyed watching the chef perform. She was really weak that night and couldn't enjoy her dinner. I will always treasure the times she and I spent together. I'm gonna miss those lunch dates with her. RIP Aunt Betty. Love you forever more!!!

Since I live in Texas I never got to be around Betty Lou much, but when I was she would always be cooking something. I have never had such good home cooking in my life! That woman could cook! I really enjoyed the times I got to be around her. She will be greatly missed!
