Family and Friends,

You have my deepest sympathy about the loss of Betty. Most of my memories are the stories my Mom told me of Gert Wilson, Betty and herself. They were inseparable friends growing up in Cover Hill.

I know it almost sounds like a cliche when people say, she's in a better place. But it is so true! Mourn for the time being because it helps getting through this tough time. But remember she now has eternal life with God! And that fact we should celebrate and be happy! God bless!
