Sharon, I am so sorry to hear this. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Jackie Allen Simmons, January 27, 2022 Sorry for your family's loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time. Lisa Seay, January 25, 2022 Betty was so precious. She was always smiling. Prayers lifted for her family and friends. Denice Burnside Green, January 22, 2022 I had the privilege of holding Betty's hands every week for the last 40+ years as I was her manicurist. But our relationship was much more than client and nail tech. I loved her more than words can describe and I will miss her dearly, but she is with Bud, and that makes me smile.
