The Parishioners of Sacred Heart were saddened when informed of Betty's death at Masses this past weekend. Immediately her name was placed in the intersessions and we have prayed for her at every Mass. May her entire family feel the support you have from everyone here and know we are all with you in spirit. May this wonderful woman rest in the eternal peace of Christ.

Our deepest sympathy to Joe and the family. We have fond memories of visiting with Betty and Joe when Monsignor Reynolds came to visit us here in Pinehurst. Many memories of times we all had in Spring Valley and Nanuet.

To the entire Gregory Family;
My heartfelt condolences to you all. To me, she will always be "Aunt Betty", one of the kindest women I ever had the pleasure of knowing. I know her presence will be missed by all who were fortunate to have known her, mostly by those who loved her and were loved by her. May God grant you peace and solace at this time of your loss.

We totally agree that Betty was one heck of a lady and a friend. May God watch over Joe & family during this time of sorrow. We believe that Betty was the only person we knew who never hit a ball into the rough.
