Miss Betty came into my spirit today (4/8/20) and I don't know why, but I decided to "google" her name. I am very saddened to hear about her passing but I know she lived nearly 90 years filled with wonderful times with family and friends. Miss Betty came into my life because I was Debi's dog walker for Tucker for more than 5 years. She was one of the sweetest people I've ever met and reminded me so much of my own grandmother. I would get so tickled by the way she would smile when I complimented her fresh curls after her trips to the salon. The last time I saw her was at Debi's memorial service and she gave me the biggest, best hug. I know Deb and the rest of your family's angels have welcomed her with open arms. May your fond memories and the wisdom she imposed bring you peace and joy. God Bless.

So very sorry for your loss. Betty was truly one of the finest ladies I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Her strength and compassion were a blessing to all who knew her. May you all find peace and comfort in the coming weeks.

Mrs Martin's Family,

So sorry to learn of the passing of this dear lady. I know that you will miss her greatly, but I am sure that you along with I rejoice in knowing that she has been reunited in heaven with so many dear ones that have gone before her. I have many fond memories of her as she kept track of me and Debi as we navigated the teen years. Along with me, my Mom and Dad treasured her friendship. We have often reminisced about the fun times we had on the many band trips she helped to chaperone and especially that trip she and Debi took with us to Mrytle Beach back in the 70s. I know that your sweet memories of her will help to comfort you in the days to come. Our thoughts and prayers will be often with you.

With Deepest Sympathy,
Carol Ann and Mike Means
