hello my name is annie hilson. I apologize for the extreme lateness on this note, I have been thinking so much about your loved one lately. I loved working with Betsy she was one of the best nurses ever and a great person. Finding out that she has left us makes me very sad' Betsy was a really good friend and when you need someone in your corner she was there never faltering and giving the best advice. Even though we had not been in contact just knowing that she was there gave me such comfort. Betsy was a beautiful person inside and out I am so sorry that I did not get to see more of her after I left Good Sam some of the best times of my life were working with her on psych.

I worked with Betsy at Good Sam. A delight! Our names were similar and calls got mixed up to us Betsy/Becky Strong/Armstrong. She invited us to her home and condo and was a great hostess. Once the group went to the Montgomery Inn Boathouse, Betsy had used the valet parking. She lost her ticket. She went up to the valet and very sweetly told him she lost her ticket-what was she to do. He asked her what kind of car she had-when she said a red Ford Taurus he said okay I'll get it for you! God Bless your family, many friends, former patients, and all the nurses you helped!
