Hi Dewey and Mary Ann,

My parents, Helen and Straughan Richardson loved knowing you! Our entire family admired your family's missionary spirit and devotion to the Lord.

Betty will remain in our memory forever.

God bless a wonderful servant of the Lord, wife and mother.

Susan Hill, Helen and Straughan's daughter

I was blessed to be a part of a Sunday School class at Second Baptist Church (RVA) taught by Betty and Dewey. That class and their combined teaching was a special time each week for me. I rarely missed the opportunity to be there on Sunday morning.

During that time I had to deal with cancer having a mastectomy followed by Chemotherapy treatments. Betty was so kind and supportive to me and I have always appreciated her care for me during a difficult time. I remember awaking from a nap in the hospital to a note from Betty that she had left on my blanket.
