May the fond memories of Betty bring you comfort and ease your pain during this difficult time. I hope you are able to look back on the wonderful times you were able to spend together with fondness. May God's promise of a future resurrection, found at John 5:28 & 29, bring you peace and hope. My thoughts are with you all.

Linda & Shawn- You are in our thoughts and prayers. Aunt Betty will be greatly missed! It was always a joy to visit and listen to her talk about her deals while going to rummage sales. I Loved to see her collection of Santa's. She will be missed, but her memory will last forever. "When Someone you Love becomes a Memory, that Memory becomes a Treasure"
