Not sure what to say?

I worked for Betty's husband, Terry, at his law office and have so many memories of how much he loved his wife and children. I am sad to have Betty pass on as through all these years I often thought of her and the influence she had in my life.

My husband (deceased) and I knew Betty and Terry through politics - way back. They were a remarkable couple. I am sorry that we didn't maintain a relationship over the years,
Your mother was a quick wit, vibrant and fun. She will live on in my memory. My sympathy to you and yours.

To Melissa and David, I am so sorry to hear of your mom passing!She was so supportive of so many people and she made a big impact on me when I was in College and working at Theodores!I learned much about politics and living life from Betty and Shirley and of coarse Jeanny.Blessings to you all and smooth sailing to you dear Betty!

I worked with her late husband, Terry and only knew her through him. I know she was a very refined woman and involved in her community. May God's angels bless her family and comfort them during this difficult time.

Betty was a wonderful lady....I first met her in New York in 1968...when I stayed with Terry..her soon to be husband...in his NY office....on my way to Iceland and Europe....Terry and I met again when we were lawyers in Topeka....and...terry was also my assistant T-ball coach with the Knights of Columbus Wildcats...Terry's kids...David & Mellissa..were on the T-ball team..along with my kids....Terry and Betty were great Democrats....Terry and I attended the Democratic National Convention...

Praying for strength for you two and your families always. Your Mom will live in all our hearts forever. Ill miss our visits so much! What a wonderful Mother and Grandmother & Great neighbor and friend she was. We were all blessed to have known her. Love always , Jody,Shane, Luke, Jeni, Haley & Bella
