Betty and I were first cousins, her mother and my mother (Ethel Louise Wilson Morton) were sisters. That was an easy family to love--and still is. While we were growing up, Betty and I were the closest of friends when we would gather at our grandparents' house in Union Point. I remember one such funny incident that we shared: she tried her best to teach me how to dance, became frustrated, and gave up--much to my appreciation! She and her family lived with me for a while before they bought a house nearby in Indian Springs, GA. She will be missed; our condolences are expressed to the four children, her sister Kathy, and her grandchildren. May God in His infinite wisdom grant them that perfect peace. With love, Tom Morton
