    I would always look forward to visiting in the summer! Betty would always do my hair for me. Made me feel like the most beautiful in the world! But she was the beautiful one- in spirit and person! She is with Ed now and a new Norwood reunion is happening on a heavenly level. Rest In Peace sweet lady! Love always!! ❤️❤️
