Betty was one of the most sweetest, most precious, most wonderfulest, most specialest Woman I ever knew in my life. She was always a joy to be around. She was kind. She taught me how to dance, how to love music, and never said a bad word about anyone. Although, I haven''''''''''''''''t seen her in years, some of my most precious memories are with Doris and spending many memorable nights at her home. I''''''''''''''''ll never forget. She''''''''''''''''ll always have a special place in my heart and as all of you will too! xooxo Janet
