I am Betty's first cousin, on her father's side. We grew up together. We are only six months difference in age. I have many, many memories from our family life, many over nighters, school days, long summer days of just enjoying each other's company. Loved her very much. So sorry for the loss of such a wonderful person. Prayers in your time of grief.
