    Mrs Betty, thank you for being such a good friend to all in our apt. community’s . It is a sad sad time here knowing you won’t be back!. I know you are with Jesus and all those you missed who went before. you! Love you Mrs Betty,; You are going to really be missed! I’ll especially remember your huge proud smile when you would get home after having your hair done. Lol.

    To Betty’s family, I shared with Allen and Rhonda today that EVERYTIME I checked on Mrs Betty, she had to show me so many of her pictures of you all and tell me how much she loved her family. She shared how she missed her husband and those gone too soon. She always had that proud smile when she talked of her family. I know you miss her already.
