Betty was my cousin and I loved her dearly. I have so many fond memories of this sweet, kind, and thoughtful lady. To know Betty was to love her, I am so happy I knew her for many years. Rest in peace. To the family, know all of you are in my thoughts and prayers. I wish I could be there for her memorial service, but due health issues, I will not be able to attend, but know my heart will be with you Thursday. Love to each of you. Jean Roberts, Lowell, N.C.
