Mr. Jim and all the family,
I can't express enough how saddened I was to hear of Mrs. Betty's passing. I have so many memories with her and Ashley while they would cook, craft, and make some of the most beautiful gifts. Mrs. Betty hosted my baby shower and made it such a memorable event, I've always been so thankful for all she did for me. She always was doing things for others, never asking for anything in return. She truly was a gracious lady, and will be missed by so many. My heart and prayers go out with you all during this time and the days ahead, asking for God's comfort during this time-always remembering this moment will pass and you will see her again.

Jim, Tiffany, and Family,
I loved Mrs. Betty dearly. She was always so kind to me when I was at Lander, and I will always remember her being with me the days after Mama died. She was a remarkable woman who lived the life of Proverbs 31. I know your hearts are broken. Please know others are praying you through and I love you! Lisa

It was with great sadness when I read Betty's obit Tuesday night in the AJC. Vicki and I have very fond memories of Betty as a dear and special friend. We offer our condolences and prayers for Jim, her children, and her extended family.

I remember a very kind and dignified woman. She was a very gracious hostess when I visited her home. I regret that I did not have the opportunity to spend more time with her. May happy memories provide strength to her loving family.
