Betty, I will live to cherish our beautiful memories in the early eighties at Moi Girls where we first met. Such a pretty girl! Beautiful inside out. Our friendship lasted through the many years, even though miles apart. Always felt our bond. Always warmed up when I saw your trademark smile...stories of Coco and family, work, earth children. Even your last post. Forever my friend darling. May God hold you well under His wing. I will miss you beautiful. Fly 💕💖 Jue Murugu

Betty I’ll never forget the first time I met you... It was at one of my siblings birthday at Tea Research Foundation in Kericho.. you were young and shy but still giggly with the most amazing smile, biggest eyes and whitest teeth I had ever seen.. I would run into you and your mother and sister Olive from time to time, often shopping at the only grocery store that existed in Kericho then, or hitch a ride with you guys in your mom’s Daihatsu or dad’s yellow 504 as you went up or down the 5kms from the highway. I will never forget the time you offered me the umbrella in your mom’s car as I was alighting in heavy Kericho downpour... That was so kind of you Betty...! Now my friend Betty, the time has come for you to head home and you have answered the call... Hold me close in your memories as I will you, in mine.., till I join you up there sometime soon, and I hopefully get a chance to tell you that I love you..., always have..., always will..!🙏

Betty, I read the story of your demise and the name rung so familiar. Your story moved me so much that I kept checking in for updates. Today I checked this memorial page and I was completely blown away ... Hyacinth and Lucille helped jog my memory - Kitale Primary where you excelled in many aspects. May you rest in eternal peace🙏🏾

I remember you from the very early days when we worked in advertising in Kenya, and from your bro Victor taking about you.

May you find eternal comfort in the caring arms of the Good Lord, till we meet again.

Oh Betty, you checked out too early for us mortals, but I can imagine the angels are happy to see your radiant smile. We used to call you ´fish’ because of your swimming speed in KP. Thank you for the chats and your beautiful smile. Lala salama mrembo.

My darling Betty. I remember when you joined me in New York for the Daytime Emmy's and when I visited with you in Houston. That was over ten years ago now. I was so happy to spend time with you after a million years since we were in high school. Albeit you were 5 years behind me in high school.

That said, my heart hurts and I still remember you as being this very vivacious person. I am so sorry that you hurt so much and I had no idea. I still weep!

Betty rest...rest in eternal peace.
