Aunt Betty,
I knew you loved us without question. You were always supportive to whatever was going on in our lives.
In 2006, you took the role of looking-out after us kids when dad passed away.
You came every year at Christmas and made us kids had a gift - because you knew Dad always did.
I will miss you for many reasons but most of all I will miss the fun, funny lady who loved Jesus with all she had.
Love you,
Your niece - Tamara Kuykendall Jones

Aunt Betty
Has always been a character in the story of my life. She taught me that family, is family, always. That staying in touch doesn’t mean every day and if you miss doing so for a while pick up the phone say hey for a couple minutes and done! Don’t feel guilt about not having done so just do it now.
She was herself, no pretenses.
She loved deeply but not gushy.
She was tenacious, just because it hadn’t been done and seemed unlikely didn’t mean she wouldn’t ask to see if it could happen now. And if she got a no, fine - she moved on to the next idea.
I’ve never known someone as they came to the end being more ok with living or dying.
She made me proud and I loved her.
I’m thankful she’s with Jesus and at ease.

Well done Aunt Betty, good and faithful! Well done.
Love JeniferLynn
