What a blessing it was for me to get to know Mrs. Betty. I was given the honor of getting to know her in the last few months of her life and what a pleasure that was. She was such a warm, caring, and comical little gal. She shared some very interesting stories about her life with me and I thoroughly enjoyed talking with her. I know she had a difficult time but she maintained that spunkiness that made us all smile. I am honored that our Lord allowed me to meet and know her. God bless the entire family during this time and always remember Romans 8:28. I cant wait to chat with Mrs. Betty in Heaven again one day.

With Love
