    We loved you A. Betty and we know you are out of pain now and reunited with Herb. You are able to roam and take long walks like you use to love to do. You will be missed.

    Sorry to hear about the loss of Betty. I remember her buying plants at the Osceola Greenhouse and showing me some of her rock collection and how she would hunt for them.

    I had known Betty for many years way before her husband passed. She will be missed for her forth rightness in the world. She was truly one of a kind and will be greatly missed by us all. Love, Linda
