I know words cannot comfort you right now in your time of bereavement, but I know that Betty will be missed by a lot of people she came in contact with. I worked with her for 12 years on the switchboard @ Augusta Health. Just know she's in a much better place but you will always have the memories to carry with you daily. Dave, Dawn, Dave and the rest of the family, you will all forever be in my thoughts and prayers as you go through your pain and sorrow of losing your loved one. May God comfort and bless you all.
