Ms. Betty was like a grandmother to me. She was such a blessing and, though very proper, had a fun, crazy side she revealed to those of us who knew her well. I am heartbroken to lose her, yet I rejoice in knowing she is safe in the arms of her Savior. Oh, how she will be missed!

I cared for Mrs Patterson at Cannon hospital. She was the sweetest woman with such kind and beautiful eyes. We joked about getting her better so she could dance at her 80th birthday in November. She will always have a special place in my heart. My condolences to her family of their loss of a dear soul.
