    I am filled with sadness, but also rejoice in knowing my lifelong friend from high school is with Jesus and in Heaven with her loved ones. If words could describe her, it would be what Jesus said of one of His disciples, Nathan, whom He said had no guile. That was Betty. She truly lived what her life represented . . faithfulness, compassion and devotion to her Lord. She had a great impact in my life. God bless her children and grandchildren, sisters and brother. Love to all.
