This is to express my condolence to Bettye's entire family. I'm very sorry for your loss. Bettye was a real jewel. The last time I saw her she seemed so content with her life. And I'm sure that her family had everything to do with that. You'll have lots of pain for sure. Hopefully the support of others will be helpful to you as you work through all the grief. Glad that I got to know Bettye. May the Lord now watch after her.
