Betty was one of the sweetest people I have ever known. Getting to know her when we worked at Burlington Mills so many years ago I will always treasure. She was a fantastic mom and grandmother. She was a genuine friend. She will be missed by many. Heaven truly is an even better place with her now. :heart:
