Dear Family of Mrs. Bethany,
I only knew Mrs. Bethany by short meetings with her at dialysis. Though short, she made an impact on my life and I will always have fond memories of her.
You are in my prayers and I hope that the many loving memories that you hold will be of comfort during this difficult time.
Sincerely, Vaught Moody

My thoughts and prayers are will all the family during this difficult time.

I grew up on Ventura Drive and later worked down the hall from Jeanette at UMC.

I will always remember her kindness and smiling face but above all I remember her love and dedication to her family.

Rest in peace sweet lady.
