  1. I’m so sorry to hear of Betty’s passing. She was a part of my life many years ago, but remained in my children’s lives and hearts forever. She was a beautiful lady with a kind and gentle soul who gave so much to others. I can still hear her laughter.

    I will treasure her memory, we had the best time ever when she visited Colorado. We had a couple of hair raising drives in the mountains, I am so happy she had her eyes fixed so she could see EVERYTHING!!! I don’t know how many pairs of earrings she bought’, but she was CrAzY for earrings. We had a blast sitting out front, enjoying the the weather playing our version of “slug bug” every time this huge diesel truck drove by, created quite a frenzy…. Wonder what that truck driver thought of all of us? Rest in Peace Aunt Betty, you are loved and you will be missed.
