I had the pleasure to meet Betty and must I say that she was the sweetest woman I have met. I would see her a few times while I was working for Frank and I always enjoyed talking to her. She will truly be missed by many.

Betty was a great lady and a dear freind to my mother Armella. I know that they are together again looking down on us all. I will keep your family in my prayers and know that I will miss her also.
