Mike, Stacy, Ann and Family: My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time in your lives. Betty Jo was a fun lady in her day. When our Mother ( Mattie Campbell) owned the Elite Beauty Salon in Greensboro, B.J. would come in and brighten everyone's day. We would all get together for a fish fry or some other dinner and have so much fun. She was definitely a legend in the Boro! Elaine Campbell Carpenter, Eatonton, Ga

Dear Mike and Stacy:
I know we do not know each other that well and I did not know Betty Joe very well either. I do know that my Dad thought a great deal of her and that was enough for me to think well of her. I hope that your grief will be no more than you can stand. Your family and the both of you will be in my prayers.

Mike, Ben, Brandon Lee, & JT,

I just received the news and wanted to tell you that you all will be in my thoughts and prayers. The times I spent around Betty Jo were always pleasant. It has been a while since I have seen all of you and I would like to see you again soon.

The Word says in Psalm 116:15, "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints." We serve an Awesome God and He loves each one of you. May you know Him in a way that pleases Him. I think about all of you often and pray blessings on you.
Love,
Aunt Lynne
