Family would like to thank a very loving family friend Sandy Camp to who was with Betty night and day to help take care of her. Words cannot say how much appreciation we have for her. Special thanks to Heather Turney for helping family get thru this rough transition.
Mom taught us girls lots of things such as how to dance, swim, fish, hunt, wear makeup, cook, sew, dress, manners, morals, and love, however she never taught us how to live without her, but God will give us strength to do so.
