Not sure what to say?

So sorry to hear of your passing. RIP cousin Jackie Mclachlan.

My sincere condolences to all of Betty's family and friends. Betty was a force to be reckoned with and she will truly be missed. I was lucky to be her friend for close to 30 years and she was like a sister to me. Betty had a kind word for everyone and would give you the shirt off her back if you needed it. The world is a little less bright without her smile and her infectious laughter. Betty, I love you more than you will ever know. Till we meet again my friend..

I did not know her, but I went to school with her husband, Gary...back in the 60's @ Hannibal Central...& I drove forklift at Nestle's....in the 70's...condolences & prayers for Gary & all her relatives & friends...God richly bless all through the remainder of this year...& "good health" to all... ~Peace & Light~

My sincere condolences to Gary, Jennifer, Richard, extended family, friends and brothers/sisters in blue. It was a pleasure to work side by side with Betty for many years. She was a beautiful person and friend who will be missed by many. I was blessed to have her in my life and will always remember her sweet smile and genuine personality. May God comfort everyone and may Betty soar with the angels. Love you my friend, rest easy until we meet again.
