Words cannot describe the love, appreciation, respect and thankfulness felt by her family for her.
In the last weeks Betty wrote many of her thoughts. In these writings she described her feelings about her life as a wife and mother. "I get overwhelmed with JOY and THANKS when I stop to ponder the family God has given Lonney and me. The character in each child God specially made for us is so unique! And when you put them all together in one family - WOW-PRAISE GOD from whom all blessings flow. I Love them all so much.
