Sandra, we are so sorry to hear of Aunt Betty's passing. She was such a sweet and wonderful lady. My first thought when Denise called last night was of Aunt Betty and Nannie up there in Heaven together and what a wonderful reunion they were having. Mom and I will see you Friday. Take care and We love you.

Sandra and Charlie: We are so sorry too hear of Betty's passing. Debbie was a good friend of Betty's for many years while doing her hair every week at Christian Towers. We kept saying we were going to see her and never did, and that is sad! Our prayer is the Lord will grant you all peace that only He can! Love Wayne and Debbie Ayers

Betty was one of the first people I met when I moved to Macon for law school. She was generous, funny, and irreverant! We did "Food & Friends" together back in 1994. Loved listening to her tell stories. If you asked a question and she started her answer with, "Well,..." you knew you were in for a fun story! She will be missed.
