I remember well both Betty and Laverne. We went to school together. She was Betty Jean Rogers then. I know she has a place in heaven for all the good work she did.

Aunt Betty, You will be greatly missed. You have always been there for all your family. Your generous spirit was inspirational. You were the one who always had an open door for anyone who needed a helping hand. The world has lost a beautiful person. Go be with your family in heaven, as I know they are waiting to see you.
