The White Dove has come and taken you to a place where you will remain in the house of the Lord forever.We will miss the long late chats,your smiling face and happy times we all shared together. Rest in Peace and when we look up at the stars at night,I will say “There is my lovely sister Betty looking down on all of us tonight.” Amen and Good Bye until we meet.

God made us SISTERS, LOVE MADE US FRIENDS. Betty was my sister I LOVED HER DEARLY she was always there for me from the time I was very young. She was fun to be with and always good for a laugh. She faced many medical problems and surgeries in her life ,she had a strong will to live and with God’s help she made it. With the last illness renal failure , God decided she had fought long enough, so He took her home. Will always love and remember you, Marie

You & Daddy were my “ROCK”, my strength!! You are free of pain and I hope you and daddy are dancing with the angels~ I love you both & we have two amazing angels watching over our family. Until we meet again. Love your daughter.
