Please accept my condolences in the death of your Mother, Grandmother. Great Grandmother, and the list goes on. She wore many hats in her family. She was one of my cousins. The first wedding I ever attended was between Betty and Harry. I remember it fondly. May God bless those she left behind and may she rest in God's peace forever. I just recently heard of her death, so forgive my late response. Cousin

I was so sad to learn of Betty’s passing. I called her a few years ago to tell her how much I appreciated her caring and guidance while I was a student at Memorial. She was a great teacher and mentor and friend. She and Harry were so devoted to each other. I pray for comfort and peace for the family. I remember some of you when you were children.

Tim, I just heard of your sweet mother's passing. I had been one of her caregivers this year (& she had been my dad's neighbor growing up). I am so very sorry she has passed! I loved her so much & all the incredible times I had with her while being able to help take care of her. I am very sad too & know her passing is the greatest of losses for your family. Many, many prayers, she was truly my friend.
