We will miss Betty and her visits to see her extended family here in Louisiana. Knowing she is with the Lord makes saying goodbye so much easier. Love to you Celia and the rest of your family.

I had the pleasure of knowing Betty for a few years in LA. I was really sad & missed her so much when she moved away. I will always remember her sense of humor & beautiful smile. Before the move, she & Celia were "connected at the hip." where there was Celia, there also was Betty. It was absolutely precious. My deepest sympathy to Celia & Jim, Debbie & Jimmy & Betty's entire family, whom she loved so much. Always & forever, I love you!!
