I am so heart broken. I can not believe sweet Betty is gone.We just talked to her a few days before this happened. I think I called her the morning she had the stroke.She always let the machine pick up and would call me back.Not this time.I know what it is like to lose a dear sweet Mother.Bless you all, David Ann Tim Nancy and Shane.Going down that road will never be the same. Our Love and Deepest Sympathy.Stan and Diane Gilliam

Ms. Betty was one of the sweetest ladies I have ever met. I was her mail carrier for many years and she was always met me with a smile and warm wishes. I've never known a soul to so speak anything but kind words about her. She has left a mark on this world and will be missed. Fly to heave Ms Betty and see your boy you have missed for so many years.
