    My sincere sympathy to family and friends in the loss of their dear one. Betty was very special. Always friendly with lots of stories to relate. She had a wonderful way of putting people at ease, doing the little things to comfort and please. She had a special kind of warmth, always quick to understand, and whenever there were other’s in need or trouble, she would lend a helping hand. She had a heart of gold. I’ve known her since year 1950, and always found her to be very tender and caring with those she loved. Although we’ve been out of touch for a while, my heart aches. I feel deeply saddened by her passing. It’s been an honor and privilege having the warmth of her friendship over these many years. She will be missed, though knowing, there will be a glorious reunion in our Lord’s heavenly kingdom does makes her passing more bearable. Again, My deepest condolences! God Bless!

    Love to all, ♥
    Bobbie Jean
