It was seven years ago when I moved to Texas and was afraid that finding new friends would be difficult. One day I met Bette at the Southlake Senior Center and was swept up into her orbit, Being with her was like being with my best friend my sister. As time passed I realized how fortunate I was to be able to play dominoes, share book club and just do lunch with Bette. Miss you me friend!

Neighbor Bette. That’s how I knew her and all of my friends and family knew her! I was lucky enough to land next to her in my apartment in Keller. She was wise, funny, loving, and an amazing friend that I didn’t know I needed!! You will always hold a special place in my life and most importantly in my heart! Thank you for being you, Neighbor Bette! I will always love you! ❤️

When Grandma would come visit us in Chicago, my sister and I used to sit on the bathroom sink and watch Grandma put on her makeup. She always had cinnamon gum in her purse. We would play boardgames and she would always beat us in 1 move. I remember one time she watched us while my parents went away, on the last day she brought us to Toys R Us and said we could get anything we wanted. I talked to Grandma a few weeks ago and we talked about how she needs to meet her Great Grandson Sawyer. I'm so saddened that she never got to meet him. She always asked for pictures of him. I'll miss you so much Grandma, I love you always.

I met Bette 28 years ago when her daughter, Barbara and I, became the best of friends. Bette was classy, fun and a very intelligent woman. She always made us laugh, she always had a story to tell, and always had good advice to share. Bette lit up the room with her smile and her warm greetings.
I am so blessed to have had her in my life. She will truly be missed by all!
Say hi to Frank and finally eat those pancakes!

I will miss my other mom, driving one of my favorite Daisies, going to lunch and a Sunday afternoon play. But I will fondly remember her humor and quick wit, teasing and bantering with her, how she seemed to know everyone, enjoying cocktails with her and her being a best friend to my mom. I was very blessed to have known and loved Bette.

I found the perfect quotation that expresses my feelings the best way I know. I shared it with her daughter, Barbara, earlier but wish to also share it with others.
“Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for a while and leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never ever the same.” Anonymous
This says so clearly what Bette meant to me. She is in my heart in a place that is forever hers.
