I met and got to know Mrs. Bellamy through a Mutual friend whom she would refer to as her other son, Mark Irving. To me she was always kind, caring and always, always had a smile on her face. A great story teller, She love to see people smiling and happy when they’re around her and for that I know in my heart, She was a great person. Betty rest in heavenly peace
