    We are saddened by the passing of Betty Jean, she will always be remembered as a loving, strong person. Our Christmas party at Carolina Commercial Systems will never be the same without Spooky and Betty Jean. One year in particular there was a bird feeder the Betty Jean wanted and when it came Spooky’s turn at selecting a gift he choose the bird feeder because Betty Jean wanted it. The guys ribbed Spooky of course, but it was a great example of their love and devotion to each other. Rest in peace Miss Betty, you will forever be remembered. I can just see you now, walking upright and strong with the love of your life, Spooky Griffin.
