I only knew Betty for a short time. She was the most bright caring person. She impressed me as a person who would do just about anything to help someone out. She and her husband seemed to be so in love, and each other's best friend. It was something to behold and I will cherish the memories of her dearly. I am very sorry for your loss. What an amazing lady!
