The picture you’ve chosen of Betty, sums up the fond memories I have of her.
Most importantly to me, Betty made my father, Stuart, so happy. He had found a perfect partner to enjoy life with.
When I think of Betty I think of her smile, her kindness towards me and her love for Stu.
Betty encouraged me to develop a passion for bridge. She shared with me a little change purse that Billy had given her, to hold my “bridge money”. I will keep that always as a memory of Betty, a memory of love.
