Aunt Betty will be dearly missed. Our trip to Louisiana last year and our late night ice cream trips when she was in Tennessee will be memories that I cherish forever. I loved to make her and Grammie laugh until they started getting tickled at each other. Many memories of her, Stacey (fat cat) and I (heifer) lying in bed laughing until the wee hours of the morning when she would visit in Illinois. Gone too soon, but never will be forgotten. Love you lady!
