We will always remember Betty's smiling face as she gave out the bulletin and Pastor's class lessons. She was such a faithful servant and will surely be missed.
We are praying for you all.

We met Dave and Betty soon after we met the Lord Jesus Christ in the early 70's. We worshipped together in Calvary Road Baptist Church in Alexandria, Virginia for a few years before they moved to Lynchburg. For a few years after that we kept in touch, but life just took over and our paths went in a number of different directions after that. It's a joy to know that they enjoyed 65 years together in marriage on earth, and are now reunited in heaven; never to be separated again. We pray that the God of all Comfort will console and guide each of you family members through the Gates of Splendor and reunite all of you in heaven one day for eternity!
