It is sad to have her pass on. I am happy she is with her Bentley. Even though we are without her quiet source of joy. Betty was always a ray of sunshine. Her laughter was infectious. Her stories entertaining. Strangers walking by could sense her goodness and would stop to talk to her if she was out in her yard. Sometimes they were invited in for a glass of lemonade. Occasionally they would return with a small gift and another visit. She gave everywhere for every need anytime. Betty and Bentley are never to be forgotten. Those they touched are now touching others. Love and peace to their family.

Betty was my favorite aunt. Her and Bentley had a large part of making me who I am today. I have many great memories of them both. May God comfort you during this time of adjustment.
