I can bearly grasp the reality that she is gone. We grew up together, in church,in school, weddings. Even when she moved to Florida she was always in touch she always knew when I needed a friend and she would be there to help me through my darkest hours. I love her very much and she will be missed more than I can say. My heart goes out to her family and many friends that will also miss her so much. But she has always been an Angel and will look down on all of us. RIP My sweet friend.

My deepest sympathies. Bette loved her family unconditionally and worshipped the ground that her granddaughters walked on. Her inner strength always impressed me and many times over the years gave me the courage to continue. You will be dearly missed Boo.

My list of fond memories is 43 years long. It's impossible to choose just one. All I will say is that no matter the subject, or how difficult it could be to talk about, my mother was always one to listen. She made me feel as though her ears were made to hear all my stories. She also gave the best advice and had many different stories of her own. Not a day will go by that I won't miss the laughter and the talks we had. The hugs and kisses too. I love you Momma! Glad you're at peace. Thanks for always being there, I couldn't have gotten this far without you. Most importantly, thanks for being my Mom!
