From the very moment I met her in 2010 “Nanny” always made me feel like family. She will be missed.

Aunt Bettye was a sweet, sweet woman whose soft voice carried so much love. I pray after she was met by her Heavenly Father that she fell into the arms of her beloved James. Prayers for Marty and Danny and the grandchildren, Rachel and Marissa. Godspeed, Aunt Bettye.
