My friend it was so hard saying goodbye yesterday but I know I will see you again one day! I will miss our long talks and all the encouragement that you have given me over the years. You have touched so many lives and though you may be gone from this earth you will not be forgotten as you will live in the hearts of all of us that you have touched and those of us that loved you!

We will miss you Betty and all that you did for our children in Sunday School. You have blessed our lives. I know that you are in heaven with lots of little children around you and your ministry will go on there. Jesus needed you there.
