I sure am going to miss you Aunt Betty. You were the so sweet and so caring to everyone that came near you. It took a lot to get you mad or upset because you didn't have a mean bone in your body. You became the Mamaw to so many after your mother passed. I sure wish I had got to spend more time with you but I will cherish every moment I did have. One of my favorite times was when we all went to TN and you and I would sit and sing classic country together. I know you are in a better place now and I will see you again. You finally get to be with your Mom and Dad, your husband and your grandson. Oh what a reunion that will be. I know you will be watching over us and you will always be in our h...earts. I love you so much Aunt Betty. May you rest peacefully.Read more

I am so very sorry for the loss of your mother and grandmother. Miss Betty was a very special lady. She came onto the Foster Grandparent Program when I was the Director. And we bonded quickly. This pic. she and Glennie met me for lunch after I retired. I will never forget her. RIP Sweet Betty. ❤️

So sorry for your loss to the whole family and friends.
Betty will always be (Mom) to me. I loved her that much.
She took me in when I had nowhere to stay. She had a beautiful soul and cared for everyone and everything. I will miss her in life but will see her again in the ever after.
God bless this family through this trying time. Hold them in your loving arms and ease their loss. I ask this in Jesus name AMEN!!!
