I know it’s affecting the both of you but I just want you guys to know that she’s resting in a better place now and is now my mother’s heavenly sister. May God bless you and your family and all you can do now is stay strong because that is what she would expect from you guys.

I was blesed to have Miss Betty be part of my life. To me she was a mother who stood by me in all walks of life, like the daughter she never had. I'm thankful she came into my life to guide me and show me the way to adulthood. It made my life that much more wonderful. My Miss Betty. You will always be in our Heart. Untill we meet again. The boys will allways love their granny.
