Betty was my best friend ,but more like my sister I never had. She shared a love and caring I had never experienced, she also shared that love and caring with those who knew her. I just found out she had passed on the 12 th of Feb. There is no one who can fill her shoes. I will miss her terribly! God Bless you Betty!
