    I have known Betty since 1972.I always considered her as a very dear friend. For years she sat up the church. And i always admired her for it. She helped me make it through my parents death . She always had a smile on her face. I will miss her but I know she is heaven. Every time I go to church and look at the pew she sat at I will think of her.
