I was sorry to hear that Betty had passed away. Her and I have been friends since I met her through her cousin, Emma Warren. We had a lot of good times together. Her and I enjoyed going to breakfast together every week. I'll miss her very much.

I remember many years ago when we would feed Betty and Wally's fish in their very large aquariums while they vacationed and brought back more fish from the Gulf. The aquariums were incredible, especially for a young child to see.

You were my mother's best friend, she missed you deeply. She appreciated your friendship, it meant even more to her as she grew older. As someone who was loved by my mother, I truly cared for you as well. God Bless You always, Betty.
