Only a few months ago, my wife & I enjoyed meeting Mrs. Wolf for the first time at the San Gabriel Lodge in Georgetown. We appreciated her lovely smile & friendly conversation. We regret your loss & that we have only that one meeting by which to remember her, but we have no doubt that she enjoyed a happy life with many friends & family nearby.

I will sorely miss Mrs. Wolf. She was always quick to make me smile every time I had the opportunity to talk to her. Her family has had a profound impact on my life and it is stimulated from the outstanding individual that Mrs. Wolf was.

Although I did not know Mrs Wolf personally, the impact of her life has had a profound impact on me and my family through the awesome legacy of her son and his family, Rev. Jay and Mary Ruth Wolf. I often remind myself of Mrs. Wolf's words, when I am tempted to be prideful "The peacock of today is the feather duster of tomorrow". Your loss is heaven's gain. You and your family are very close in our hearts, thoughts and prayers during this time.

Bettie became a friend of the family just the past year, after my mother-in-law, Rand, retired and began playing bridge with her several days a week. Kale, my son, began mowing her lawn this fall. She was always a joy to visit and listen to her stories about her loves in life: Church, Family and Friends. She will be missed.

Bettie Mae stayed with my family in Johnson City while dating Jay Wolf. She and my father were first cousins. My daughter and I were planning a visit with her when the weather warmed. My sincerest sympathy to her lovely family.

We remember Mr & Mrs. Wolf's visit to Alexandria, VA sometime in the mid-80s, and somehow during that short visit we were able to get the Wolf family out to our farm. It was
a happy time for us sharing Texas and Virginia cattle experiences and having fellowship with a beloved family.

We are so sad to hear of Bettie's passing. Bettie and Jay were always such good friends to us and we have many nice memories of our times together in Georgetown. We are sorry that we will not be able to attend the services, due to our own illness, but you are in our thoughts and prayers
