I am sorry to hear of Aunt Betty passing. I did not realize she was born in West Virginia; which is now where I live. I'm glad she met Uncle Paul so we had an opportunity to have her as part of our family. She will be missed, but now her and Uncle Paul can be together again, both with God in Heaven.

To Paula, David and Steve,
Your Mother was a very sweet and kind lady that I had the privilege to have known.
She always did Mom's and us three girls hair. And she did love too clean. What a beautiful home Betty always kept.
Good-Bye my lovely neighbor. Rest well with Paul and In the Arms of the the Lord.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of Betty's family as you go through her service tomorrow. I grew up in the same neighborhood as Betty in Athens. Hang on to your memories at this difficult time.
Blessings to all of you.
