Betty was a very dear friend and so MUCH more. She treated me like family. When we visited with each other we would talk for hours about dreams; share life stories; and discuss good food. She loved her views; whether is be in a cabin overlooking the Grand View, or the back porch with the lake and it's activity.
She always had a positive outlook, even when she was hurting.
The mold was broken when Betty was born, so how fortunate to have know the "One-of-A-Kind Betty". I Love You Betty!!!!
