B, you meant the world to me. You loved me and my animals, and that meant to much. You and Blayne treated me like family, and I am so grateful to have been a part of your lives. Going to miss you girl!!! Until we meet again, love you.

We will always remember Miss Betty Halling here in the Wellness Department. She made us laugh, smile and just feel good. She was a kind heart and so very gracious. We miss her so much!

Dear Kim, Mike, and family. Pam and I are saddened to hear of the passing of our neighbor in Raytown for many years Betty. Could not ask for better neighbors than Betty and Blayne. I visited them several times since we moved away to Blue Springs and now to Maryville Missouri. We send love and prayers to you and your family in your time of sadness .
