Betty was my prayer partner starting in the 1970's. I met her at Christian Women's Club and attended her Bible classes when she lived on Washington Street which were very helpful to me. In later years I visited her and we played various games and prayed too. She was a very special person in my spiritual journey.
I am sorry I missed her death notice in the paper.

Randy sorry to hear about your Mother. I still remember her from the old days when you were growing up and she was in Home Bureau with my mother. That's what we look back on to bring a smile to our face, the good times. Take care.
