Bettie & I had lots of fun years ago. We sang together, studied scripture, picked peas and shared each other's burdens and joys. I loved her and I know she loved me too. I will miss our chats on the phone. Love to her family. You all hold a special place in our hearts.
Much Love, Ann Peevy ( and Bill says, me too!)
