Judy, We are so sorry to hear of the loss of your daughter. Your family is in our thoughts n prayers. Love you!

Sally n James Kirk, Marietta, GA

I'm deeply sorry for the loss of your loved one. The pain that death brings cannot be compared to anything else we experience. Please find comfort in the promise Jehovah gives at Isaiah 25:8.

Jessica Hobbs Mack, Savannah, Ga. ,

To the Hayes, Shoemake, Smith, and Kirk families; Our hearts and prayers go out to you, and pray that the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort, surround you with his love and peace at this time. As the Apostle Paul admonished the early church, in I Thessalonians 4:13-18; to sorrow not, even as others which have no hope; BettyAnne had and still has Christ in her the hope of Glory, Col.1:27, and because of this we can rejoice that she lives forever in Jesus. Paul goes on to say in verse 14; "For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. v15; For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. v16; For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:and the dead in Christ shall rise first: v17; Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. v18; Wherefore comfort one another with these words." So, BettyAnne, we will see you soon, when you come with Jesus to gather all who believe, and we will forever live together with Him. Love and peace, Nina, Stephen, and Philip Blair

Nina Blair, Marietta, GA

So young and pretty, and I’m so deeply moved by her passing. Death was never God’s intended purpose for humankind, and that’s why its so painful for us. But in Psalms 25:8 God promises to swallow up death forever one day soon. May you find comfort and peace in these words.

Lw, Atlanta, Ga

When I lived in GA, I worked with Betty. She was always a sweet and loving person who always talked about her family. It didn't take long before I could tell that her family meant so much to her. I never know what to say in times like these and I always tend to want to ask, "why?" But I know I have to have faith that this is God's plan, even though it can't be understood right now. My thoughts and prayers are with Betty's close friends and family, along with everyone who had the pleasure of knowing her.

Katie Stewart , New Albany , MS

I worked with Betty for a few years at A-J's. She was kind hearted and giving. We became friends and talked and joked around a lot at work. She always seemed to make me laugh and was always kind to me and my family. She loved her family and talked of them all the time. I will miss seeing her around. May you Rest In Peace Betty.

Cindy Thompson , Tybee Island , Ga

Betty, I am so grateful you were in my life. Thank you for loving my brother and being the sister I never had. You gave me a beautiful nephew (and 3 amazing children) that l I will cherish for the rest of my life. You were always so beautiful, Betty. I hope you'll greet me with that beautiful smile whenever I cross over. I have Delilah and promise to love and care for her like you did. Please watch over my brother. Love you Love always, Cat Kirk Bell

Catherine Kirk Bell, Savannah, Ga

Betty will truely be missed. She was the sweetest women ever! She was a very hard worker and also was completely dedicated to her kids and husband. She will forever be in my heart and I'll miss her dearly. I feel blessed to have been able to share some of our life together.
