I always loved to see Miss Betty when she would come to check on Karen and me at our office at WHMS. She was always so pleasant and a delight to be around. She loved Karen with all her heart. I am happy to have had the opportunity to know her. Prayers for her family and loved ones.

Doug and I knew Betty and Jack thru Doug's maintaining Jack's truck and car for years. Mrs. Betty always made Doug one of those famous coconut pies...he loved them and I thought they were pretty special too! I have thought of you alot lately, in the last 6 months, wondering how you were doing. I am glad to know you are now with Jack in the "happy hunting grounds" again. True love can never be kept apart for long.
