I remember all the good times we had. So hard for me to believe she is gone. Betty had the biggest heart of anyone I knew. I wish I could be there. But circumstances prevent this. Betty loved her family on conditionally and her family loved her just as much. Betty couldn’t have asked for a better daughter, who surrounded her with nothing but love. Rest in peace, my friend. I think you will be wearing a cowboy hat in heaven. And certain people know what I mean about the hat. Love you, Betty!
