I loved Beth, Savannah, Abby, Georgia and Chris since I can remember. She was another mother to me for many years.
The time we spent together were unforgettable and life changing. She made me feel special, beautiful, smart, and accepted for who I was.
Her laugh is burned into my brain, and I'll never forget it. Her perfect lipstick, love for French onion soup, and late nights spent just with me as a teen showed me what it meant to be beautiful, and that I was a pretty cool gal.
We did so many crazy things. On one of the many nights I stayed with her on Chalfonte drive, we decided, after discussing the pitiful color of her inside carport door to paint it. Of course I was a teen, but she had all the faith in me that I could do it. After all, my mom could. Years later when my husband and I bought that house. The streaks of our painting and laugh fest were still there. I struggled to paint over them, but figured I'd eventually have years to make more with my best friend. Everytime I apply my red lipstick, or any lipstick. I can hear her telling me that all a pretty girl really needs is lipstick. I still stand by this because it's true!!
After she met many of my boyfriends, and had gotten quite sick. She still made my wedding with teen Savannah as my bridesmaid. She outshone me by a mile. Her presence in a room was filled by her laugh, sense of humor and the natural beauty that she couldn't get away from.
No matter what mistakes I made. She forgave. No matter what mistakes she made I forgave. She will always be my 2nd mom.
She helped me to respect my mom like she respected hers. I loved seeing her light up when she talked about her mom calling her Betsy. Life is a strange road, and I am forever blessed to have her cross mine.
I love you Beth!! I'll see you when it's my time. I look forward to it my friend.
