We remember "Betsy" fondly and are so saddened to hear of her passing. She helped me by tax free bonds when I first moved back to Florence,
May she rest in Peace.
Love, Phillip H. Greenberg MD FACS and Family Florence,SC

Beth and family,
Please accept my sincere condolences. The loving care your mom received from you during her difficult times are a testament to all the things Christ asks us to do in this life.
I'm glad your lovely mom is at rest and peace after a well fought battle.
Your mom and you are an inspiration to us all.

I am sorry to have neglected to sign my name to the message that accompanies the photo of Betsy in her living room.

Betsy has been one of my most cherished friends for many years. She had more curiosity about everything, than 10 ordinary people, and I loved that in her, along with her adventurous spirit and willingness to meet challenges "head on." She had integrity, intelligence, a love for color, and a passion for justice. I am glad she is now free of her suffering, and will always remember our interesting conversations and many good times. I love you, old friend.

We are so sorry that Betsy has passed. She was a joy to be with and she will be missed. Prayers for her family.

Elizabeth , only knowing you a short time. You will truly be missed. The short walks in the garden watching the different animals, brought us both laughter. Listening to you daughters roll of all your adventures, reading short stories. I am very happy to have met you as I sat with you in your journey you also lead me through a journey. Thank You for you time and smiles. May God be with your family as the move forward.

Betsy was a dear friend who brought a lot of laughter and good fun to my life. I will miss her.
