  5. Betty was an angel who walked this earth. She was an awesome neighbor and friend! Always sharing treats and gentle ribbing with my children, they soon learned to love her company so much that they dubbed her Betty-Spaghetti. Her oft-times ribald sense of humor and her love of life was infectious. We missed her terribly when she moved from Oleander Dr. A better woman and friend has not walked this earth. I rejoice in the knowledge that Betty sings loudest in the Heavenly Chorus! My deepest sympathy to her family for their loss.

  6. Dear Betty, goodbye for awhile, your little body just gave out but your spirit will live always. I can’t imagine the beauty you’re seeing right now…much love till we meet again.
