Sharing in your sorrows I pray in time there will be comfort in the memories Betty has left behind & the tears will turn to laughter. When u reflect on the time you shared (which seems all to short now-)the blessing is you will continue to learn and love and grow from all your mom/grandma has given you by her life example - she was a women of humor and grace whose memory will be forever precious and can never be taken away
From the bottom of my heart - in deepest sympathy Hugs

She was truly a gently soul who had a smile that lighted the room she was in. Her love of her family, her friends, and her community is truly a beacon of how we should all live our days here with each other...May she have flown peacefully into the arms of Jesus
