My sympathies to the family. She was one of my mother's (Annis Bodie) best friends and had been in my life for as long as I can remember. I have many pleasant memories and she will surely be missed.

To the DeNeal Family,

Know that God will see you through a time such as this. Hearts maybe heavy, tears may flow but that when God whispered to your loved one, she surely was ready to go. For this old world is not our home and God lets us stay here for only so long. So lift up your heads and wipe away your tears for Mother Betty lived her life throughout her 100 years. God Bless each of you.
