Not sure what to say?

Betty, you helped me through a 7-year divorce and saved 3 little innocent children. As a single dad, who was suddenly ordered to take sole custody of his children, what did I know about taking care of little kids? The children and I were in a little boat without a paddle in the middle of very rough seas, but over the course of many years you guided us to other side, and we all made it to safety. God Bless you. With love & respect - Bill

Oh Betty, you were the grandmother I never had. You warmly welcomed me into your family without hesitation and always made me feel special. I love you dearly and will miss you so much.

Betty's family - Betty was a therapist, a loving mother figure, a business advisor to me for over 20 years. With her skill, love, wisdom and support she taught and guided me to find all the disparate pieces of myself, understand myself and really made me feel WHOLE again. I am so different today and could not have done it without her.
Your Mom and Grandma and my therapist made such a difference.
I am so sorry for your loss. And send you prayers and goodness in this time of such...

Tony and Bruce, I am saddened to hear of your mother's passing. She was my teacher and friend. My condolences also to all of Betty's clients, past and present. Such a warm heart and wise mind. I wish to be there in person but I will not make it. Warm wishes as you gather tomorrow and in the months to come.

My deepest condolences to the family and friends. May the comfort from our heavenly father and fond memories give you peace.

Tony, I was saddened to read of your mom's passing. I have many fond memories of the community of friends and families growing up as a kid on Derick way. Your mom and dad were always welcoming and very nice on the many days and night I spent at your house. My thoughts are with you and your family. I regret not being able to attend your moms service but I'm taking my mom out of town for the weekend. with much love, Greg virga

I'm so very glad we had a chance to spend time together recently. You will always be very special to me, and I will miss you so much.

She was always there for m, and I will always remember her voice saying "Hi Sweety" every time I called. I love and will miss her.

I was one of Betty's 1st private clients: she drove her little orange Karman Ghia to my home as she had no office however in time I Was driving to her office where she helped me & then HELPED me again. I still think of her & imagine what she would tell me when the next problem arises. She was soon besieged by my friends & acquaintances. We called her the chain letter lady. She was amazingly wise with her advice. I thank her one last time for her steady hand.
Sincerely, Sally...
