My Deepest Sympathy. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Betty was a lovely lady and my Mom's best friend. My Mom thought the world of Betty. My Mom named me after Betty, using her middle name. Betty attended my Mom's passing and I was able to tell her that. I will always cherish sharing Betty's middle name. Love and Hugs. Ronda Bogart

Sorry to hear that your mother passed. She was a good neighbor and always had a smile when we'd see her. She will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are coming your way to help you through this time of loss.
