Our daughter, Donna is married to Hal (Bubba) Kizer and I remember meeting Herb and Betty Kizer for the first time. We immediately bonded and realized we had a lot in common. We have shared many memories with Betty and her family. We've loved traveling to Georgia and visiting with the Kizer family. Betty always made us feel welcome. She loved her family - "her boys", the grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was a special person and we will miss seeing her and visiting with her.
We send our thoughts and prayers to her family.
Love, Keith and Eletheer
