    Betty, you were the first person who taught me how to combine theory and good nature to students. It was a pleasure to be next to you each school day. It all started with the 8th grade trips to Washington and ended with calls to each other at home. Thank you for your wisdom and wit.

    Betty was one of the kindest, warmest ladies I ever met. Always a warm greeting whenever she saw you or ask you about something you told her. She will be sorely missed. May she rest in peace and her memory be a blessing.

      Betty, you are so loved by everyone, especially your family. I will miss all are chats together on the phone. Because of all your trips I was able to see so much of Europe, We always had so many laughs together and I always loved when you said something to people joking around when you really did not even know them. My heart is broken by losing such a kind, funny and caring friend. RIP my friend until we meet again.
