    I am heartsick to hear this so late. Ms. Betsy was a good friend and has been on our Board of Directors for several years. She was always there for me and a strong supporter of recycling in Lincoln Co. She will be greatly missed. Gail Randolph

    Dianne, I am so, so sorry to hear of the loss of your sweet mother. She has been a favorite friend of mine since I first met her in the Mother’s Club about 35 years ago. She has always been a lovely Southern lady.

    Dear Allen, Linda, Michelle and Stephen, We were saddened upon hearing of Betsy’s departure. She was always such an inspiration when attending our worship services in the Glenn Springs Presbyterian Church. She radiated joy through her personality and appearance. Separation is always painful. You can be comforted in knowing she is now with her family where rejoicing is taking place. Please know of our prayers and those of the dear folks in the Glenn Springs Presbyterian Church. May the Lord be your comfort and strength. Our prayers and love, Bob & Geneva Pettit
