Betty rocked. Tough as nails and a tender heart. I'll remember our motorcycle ride to Quinn's graduation, staying with me in FL, and going to the surrounding beaches in Miami and the Keys, talking, watching the tube, eating our tuesday hogies and sneaking our chocolate. She made an impact, and will ne surely missed. RIP young lady. Your friend Colonel Roy xo

Gockley Family, My sincere condolences on the loss of your mother and grandmother. Betty was such a pleasant, hardworking woman that kept her yard meticulous. When I was in Jr. and Sr. High School our bus stop was at the corner of her yard and we would always see her out working in the yard or in the garden. She would always say Hello. I also used to see her in church but never got to chat with her. My thoughts and prayers are with you all especially during this most difficult times. Karen Paul
