Betty was one of those people that everyone loved, because she herself showed love to everyone. She wore Jesus on her sleeve. You just knew there was something different about her...always smiling, so positive no matter what the circumstances. She SO loved her family, especially her grandkids and great grands. She is a lady whose love for us all will make it hard to be without her physically but we know we will see her again one day. I imagine she is singing loudly today in Heaven...right where she wants to be.
