Betty has always been an angel to
me, but also an angel to everyone
her heart touched. No one was
Even in her work place she went
above and beyond what was expected
of her. When she worked at SST
building 18 wheelers she would lay
out the tools needed for the
oncoming shift so no time was lost.
I remember her introducing me to a
homeless woman at a gas station she
used to go to on the way back from
work. She helped her by giving her
whatever change she had to survive.
She told me that sometimes when she
went to work there would be a
homeless man under a bridge close
to where she worked that had a sign
"Will work for food". She never did give
him money because we didn't
have much, but she would give him
Her lunch she took for work.
When she worked at O'Reilly's and didn't have any
deliveries to make she would sweep out the storage
room, shipping/receiving, and clean the bathrooms.
Not only did she want to make me happy and
comfortable, but everyone she met.
She had one delivery to a mechanic,
Jay in Terrell. She stopped whenever she saw him in trouble
and offered him any assistance she
could. He even told her on several
occasions that she must have been an
She delivered to other mechanics that had
people that cared about her enough to pray
with and for her when they heard that she had ALS.
She led a life of service. Will
Rogers said "I never met a man I
didn't like. Neither did Betty. She
not only liked everyone she met,
she did her best to make that
person's life a little bit easier to deal with.
Not only did she lead a life of
service, but she did it without any expectations.
She was, is, and always will be a taste of Heaven.
What I don't understand is why
someone as unworthy as I was blessed
with a borrowed angel like Betty. I say
borrowed angel because she truly did
belong in Heaven.
I've been calling her my angel for
quite some time. Now she is where she belongs, an angel to everyone.

I was blessed to see my cousin Lulu a few yes ago after a long absence. She was a such a breath of fresh air. A beautiful and delightful soul. You know, someone who's light that attracts you, and you simply just want to be there. We spoke on the phone about a tragic event that happened in our lives when we were very young. She filled me in on the missing details, and couldn't believe that I remembered so much details, after me only being three years old at the time. I live and work overseas, so I told her that I would in town soon, and would love to see and visit her. I asked if she had any photos of her mother, my late aunt. I had none. She brought some to Walmart so I could make some copies. She also had brought at least one family VHS tape, which I converted to DVD for her. We had a wonderful time talking and sharing our thoughts. She spoke about Martin, I could tell, by the was she spoke, she loved him very much, and I'm sure he loves her too. I didn't know at the time, that would be the last time I saw her. I called her a couple of times. Once after I found out that she was sick. I regret it took me so long to find her. And that we could have spent more time together. But I am also very grateful for the time I did get to spend with her. I pray the she can finally be free of pain. Rest in Peace. She is with her mother and father, and my mother, my father, and my sister. I love you Lulu, and miss you very much. I pray for Martin, even though we never met, I pray that he finds peace and comfort. May God bless, Amen.
