I remember the very first time I met this precious lady. Ray took me over to their house because he was so fond of Aunt Betty and Uncle Wayne. He wanted me to love them as much as he did, and I certainly did. No one ever entered her home without feeling that you were just the person she was hoping to visit. This world could use so many Aunt Bettys, but there will only ever be one. RIP. No one ever deserved to more than she.
