I was Jesse´s Hospice nurse before I retired in April, 2019. She made me feel very special, and we cried during my last visit. She had a huge heart, and was so thoughtful. Betty Lou was a wonderful caregiver of Jesse, and other family members. Her family was her pride and joy. I know she will be missed by all of you. I will keep you all in my prayers.

My sympathy to Betty's family. I bowled with Betty many years ago at Terrace Bowl in Ch'ville. I remember Betty as kind, friendly and a very good bowler.
