I am Bettys first cousin and live in Florida and although I did not get to see her often we talked on the phone often. She was such a loving caring person who loved God and all of her family. I never heard her speak ill about anyone she just loved everyone. Every time we were ready to hang up from talking she would say Nadine I love you and tell your brother and sisters I love them too and that I am praying for all of you, I will really miss my talks with her and I am sure she will deeply be missed by her loving family and anyone who knew her. She really loved going to church when she had been able to. My prayers and love are with all her family
all of you.
