    I worked with Betty forty years ago and I thought so much of her and your Dad. He would come to the bank after he got off work on Fridays and see your Mother and speak to everyone. Betty was so good to me and helped me a lot. My prayers and thoughts are with you all today and the days to come. May God wrap His arms around you and keep you close.

    Ms. Betty will be missed by many. In the short time I was blessed to know her, she shared many stories with me of her childhood. She loved her family. She was very special. I’m glad you are with your beloved Guy. Genie will have a wonderful angel looking after her. RIP dear Betty!
