Betty and my mother (Vember Quinn) went to Washington DC as girls. Betty was always kind to me and glad to see me visit church after I moved away. She will be missed. My condolences to the family.

Todd, you and Donna are in our thoughts and prayers. I know this is a sad time, but it is good that Betty is now at peace. I will be out of town and cannot be at Betty's service. We will surely be thinking of you all. We love you. Sandra and Robert
