Betty I have known you for a long time ever since Ed and my dad worked together so many years ago and you and Terrie became besties. We share the love animals and I will never forget when you kept my big boy CJ while I was on the truck. You were always so kind and yes you did have such an amazing smile.
Rest in Peace Betty

From the time when I was younger and until now the very best that I remember of you was your great smile that always lit up the room and the laugh that filled it with joy. We will all miss you but we are better for knowing you. I am so happy to have been a part of this family and you will always be in my heart. I love you Betty! RIP
Let your smile fill the heavens,
Love, Dawn
