One of the best mother-in-law’s a person can wish for. She was a very loving person and had a heart of gold. She loved her grandkids and great grandkids with a passion. She will be missed.

Betty and i had so much fun fishing together, playing cards together, catching live shrimp at 5:30 am in 37 degree temp. Our horseback riding trips were a challenge. Betty asked for the slow moving Horse and got what she asked for. Really funny when her horse was at the end of the line and it would not move. One time while Betty was fishing Ira took a nap, they lost the anchor and boat was drifting down the river while Betty was changing her hook. Jimmy noticed it and Yelled across the way “Betty!! You drifting away! .” Boy did Betty start hollering to wake up Ira. Jimmy and i laughing our heads off as they go drifting down the river! On the serious side Betty would always read her Bible first thing in the morning, even while visiting wit us in San Antonio. We enjoyed site seeing at the River Walk, getting lost, and eating at Mexican Restaurants! Betty and i enjoyed talking about her cruise trips and we shared events involving our children and grandchildren. Betty and i enjoyed filling shoe boxes for the sailors who come in at the Port of Lake Charles! Betty and i enjoyed going to Church activities and on Sunday morning the first order of business was to share our fishing stories with Pat , the Sunday School Teacher. Well, so many other things to share would take many pages! Gonna miss Betty!
