Betsy Castro was a true example of God's love. Each and every person can testify how her warm smile, kind words and deeds impacted the community, families, and the Special Olympics in Macomb. A real life ANGEL!!

Our deepest sympathy to Henry and Scott. We were blessed to know Betsy from our kids both named Scott on the same hockey team the MORC Stars. Betsy was always so patient with my Scott even though he would call her name Betsy, Betsy, Betsy everytime he would see her. She never let it bother her. Todd myself and Scott will miss you dearly Betsy, Rest In Peace.

Shocking news -- so young and so vibrant and compassionate a person to leave us so soon. We knew Betsy from involvements in St. Clair Shores and always admired their family. Our sincerest heartfelt sympathy to Scott and Henry. She was special. Sharon and Gene Guswiler
