    I am so very sorry for the loss you are all feeling right NIW. She was a Sweet, kind and loving woman. I wish I could be with you all, esp. You dear Gloria, but I will be in Mississippi with my daughter in law and grand daughter, helping them get ready for their next duty station. My so is going to Texas for training and Sarah’s mom just died too. Hugs and much love to you all.

    Betty was one of the sweetest, kindest people you could ever meet
    She always enjoyed giving people gifts. Especially little children.
    She made delicious peanut butter fudge candy when she was able. I always was glad to get some to eat
    She reminded me of our Aunt Sally Taylor a lot. Both were fine people

    BettyMae was a completely selfless soul who wore a beautiful red framed smile to the world. She was devoted to the Church, to Tom, and to the rest of her family and friends. How many people can say they have been married 59 years? Tom’s devotion and care of her is just as rare. She is at peace now and has thrown off the terrible spasms that have ravished her body for so long. We love you and will miss you.
