Betty, I was looking forward to seeing you this summer but the Lord had other plans for you. Plans that we didn't know about. I know you are dancing around heaven showing your smile and pretty dimples, I'll miss you for your smile and dimples. I'll see you one day again, and until then I'll pray for both of us. Have a Happy Mothers Day in heaven with the Lord Love you always Judy

MAMA BETTY: KIND, UNDERSTANDING, LOVING, JUST REAL !!! MA BETTY - A Lady that did not pretend what's it like to suffer different temporary mishaps through this life. Always willing to assist one that was ready to end a not working life situation and to begin again through her endless understanding of LIFE'S GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and MATURITY in becoming a better you. This lady through her big beautiful smile always made you feel welcome in her home. I always enjoyed her company. I may miss her being in a physical body; but who she really is will dwell with me--us forever. Peace-- Joy-- Happiness -- and Comfort with Memories of a GREAT MOTHER, STEP MOTHER, AND GENUINE FRIEND. DEBORAH ROY love to my sisters and brother
