I have loved Betty and being a part of her life these past six or so years since I came to know her when I visited HartCare. I will miss her very much. My prayers are with you, Nikki and Kendall, as well as with all who loved her.
I am so regretful that I am out of town and will miss her service. Gloria Moon
