My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Betty was such a wonderful, kind and gracious person. It was truly an honor to know her and all of the family. I remember the toy she gave my daughter Carissa at Halloween one year and is still remembered today. Carissa called it 'Fifi" and it was her favorite toy. May God comfort you all.
