      Betty was my neighbor when I was a little girl. I remember being inside of her house and it looked like a mansion, so beautiful!
      She and Ralph always bought from me whatever I was selling through school or the girl scouts.
      May she rest in peace as she is reunited with Ralph and rest of her loved ones.

    One of the hardest workers I’ve ever met, and always such a sweet lady. I enjoyed working with her at the hospital. I’m sorry for your loss.
