    Betty was more than a friend to me. She was family, the sister I never had. We grew up together, worked together.We have shared it all, from laughter to grief. She never let me down, and I pray I didn't her. I know she is with our Heavenly Father, because she told me she would see me their someday.I have lost one of the dearest friends anyone has ever had, but I will always have the memories we shared. I would like to offer my condolences to Jerry,Amee and the rest of those that were close to her. You are in my Prayers, and just as I will, I know you will cherish the memories, that this wonderful human being made with you. Jerry, I just want to say a special Thank You for letting me go home and eat lunch with you and Betty from work all those times! Your kindess and Betty's will never be forgotten!
