    To the family of Mrs Bettie Marie Bryla, I want to send my condolences to all of you. My memories of Mrs Bettie was fond times of her telling all her stories of growing up with family and friends here and from the places she has lived. She always kept us in stitches with everything she did and lived through. She was a special lady and meant a lot to all of us who knew her, Mrs Bettie is at peace now and is resting looking down on all of us to make sure we behave. She was a wonderful loving person to know, I will miss her greatly. May God be with each and every one of you in the days to follow, please know God will help all of our hearts in the healing of our loss. Love, TERRY SPIVEY
