To the Carter family;

You will be in our thoughts and prayers. Betty was a lovely person and will truly be missed. She had recently joined "The Women of Destiny" bible study group and I really enjoyed my conversations with her.

This just doesn't seem real. You will be missed at Maxwell. Chapel. The kitchen committee won't be the same without you. I don't have anybody to tell me put those beans in a bowl instead of putting that pot on the table. Gonna miss you Betty Jean
