Dear Karen, Chris, Michelle and family,

Through Betty, you’ve been part of my enlarged family, whether you were aware or not. We shared much, the two of us. I know you’ll agree with me that Betty was an angel, with a beautiful soul. As a friend, I couldn’t have asked for better. Always loving, non-judgmental and such fun to be with. Along with you, I shall miss her painfully. And always be grateful for the time we had together.
