I loved my Ant Betty the most, because she was different and knew how to live. She lived her life her way and not as directed by others; family. I havent seen her in a long while but she was always the ant I talked about with family and friends. The last time I called her I was still "Johnny", I was 65 years old at the time. I am sad more that I didnt take time to visit her more. I guess we all do that after the fact.
My thoughts and love go to you guys all apart of the Arnold clan.
Johnny

I didn’t know Betty Jo, but, I know her daughter, Janet. Janet is an awesome friend and neighbor, which I have no doubt is credited to having caring parents. Condolences, Janet and family. RIP Betty Jo.

Such a beautiful person inside and out. I will always remember her smile and laughter. I'm truly blessed to have called her Mamaw. Sending many prayers to Grandpa, Mike, Janet, Darla and my mother Cindy. God Bless you all.
