I always enjoyed talking to my cousin Betty. We had so many good memories from our earlier, younger, years. She was such a good person, who never said anything bad about anyone. She always liked watching WVU games so I would call & remind her that they would be on tv. I will miss our time we spent on the phone reminiscing. I love Betty & will miss her.
