Betty was such a pleasure to get to know and be around. I really enjoyed visiting with her at the nursing home. She was a giver, always pleasant and continued to have a sharp mind. I am so very sorry for your loss. She was such a lovely lady.

Betty was a very special person and meant a lot to me. Although I had not seen her in years when she came to the Manor I got reacquainted with her and we had many good talks. Loved this lady and I am so sorry for the loss of the precious lady. Sympathy to all of you !
