I'm so sorry to hear about Betty and send my condolences to all the family. Everyone loved Betty and I have such good memories of her from years ago. My mom loved Betty and they used to visit and spend time together. I know she was a good mom, sister, grandmother and cousin to all of us. I'm in Washington state with my daughter until the 20 th so most likely will miss her celebration of life so May God bless the family!
