    I can only imagine how joyful you are now in God’s presence. You will be missed greatly here but I know you no longer suffer. Rest in the arms of Jesus until we see each other again. Your friend and fellow Y&R fan.

    I’m so sad right now, this has shocked me so much. Betsy was a great friend, and a caring person. We didn’t see each other much. I will miss you Betsy.

    It saddens me to hear of Betsy’s passing. Richard, Ellen and family, I pray God wraps you in his comforting arms during this difficult time. Betsy was such a sweet person. I know she will be missed by many.

    Betsy knew how to make a persons day at work roll by fast. She never had a frown just jokes, smiles and laughter. Sending an extended hug and prayer to the family.

    Wow I just found out. Had you on my mind a lot these past few days. Well to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. You will be missed greatly. I have to go look at my wedding pictures so that I can see my mom walking down in the wedding! Love you more than words can express… So please look out for the family up there… And PS Uncle Joe is there please look out for him…
