I am going to miss you, Betty. Our emails, and our chats when I got to see you when I came to Cleveland. You have always been very important to me. You were one of the kindest, most generous people I knew. Love you, girl!

I have lost a dear and precious sister-in-law!! God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be, so He put His arms around you and whispered "Come to Me". With tearful eyes we watched you and saw you pass away and though we love you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands were put to rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us...He only takes the best. And now He has one of the very best!! Helene

God has gained an angel and we've lost another friend. Betty was such a wonderful person who made you feel so welcomed and special. During my heart surgery stay, the biggest flower arrangement I ever received in my life was sent by this lovely person. The greatest waitress....who loved my "kids" and never failed to ask about them. She was greeted in Heaven by so many who loved her, who have gone to be with our Heavenly Father. May her family have peace in knowing she was loved by so many.
