Aunt Betty was the most gentle and most kind woman I know. I remember back in the days after Sammy and I were married and we would get together for Christmas. We were always welcomed with love and lots of good food. Sammy loved her and his Uncle Blaine. They were always most gracious. I loved to talk with her when we would meet at the gym. She was very inspiring. I know. That she will be missed by her family but think she is in no pain and she is with Uncle Blaine. God be with each of you.
Love and prayers
Amelia
