Mrs. Betty was such a beautiful person inside and out. I have missed her through all these years and wished I had kept in touch. I so enjoyed talking to her at your wedding Danny. Praying for peace and comfort to you all, Danny, Debbie, and Pam.

Danny I am so sorry for the loss of your Mom. The last time I saw her she was at the hospital for some procedure you were having and I was having something too. That was several years ago and she still looked the same. She was a sweet, precious and beautiful lady. Praying for all your family now and in the days to come. Much love to you.

“Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints”.
Though it is a painful separation, praise the Lord it is temporary and we will see her again .
I loved Mrs Betty as my second Mama . She will surely be missed.
Pam, Debbie, and Danny I pray for your comfort in the days ahead .
