    Betty was a childhood friend and school mate. Betty always had a good heart and it saddens me and our classmates to hear of her death. May God grant you, her family peace and comfort

    My aunt had a strong and positive influence in my life. I will always be grateful and truly regret the years that passed without taking the time to visit. I will think of her often.
