Aunt Betty was the sweetest soul I think I will ever encounter. She was gracious enough to take on the Mother/Grandmother role in the lives of her nieces and nephews. I remember walking to her house on hot summer days after playing @ the park. She would fix my friend & I something cool to drink & give us a snack. She always had a smile & a hug for everyone. She loved to flirt with my husband!! When we went to visit her once she noticed that we had bought a blue Ford dually. She commented on how pretty it was and looked my husband in the eyes and said, "You can call it Blue Betty if you want to". Whatta character she was. She will be missed however, I know there has been a tremendous rejoicing in heaven with all that have went before her. I'm so thankful to her for all the love & lessons she passed on to me.
