Betty was such a special person; like a second mother to me when I was growing up. I am so glad I had the chance to visit with her a few weeks ago, and see that sweet smile again. You are all in my thoughts & prayers and as always, in my heart. She is at peace and smiling more than ever in the presence of our Lord. Love you, Bettyann
