I met Betty while she was taking care of Jim at Cotillion Ridge Nursing Home. I admired her devotion to her husband, her faith and the way that she would go out of her way to help those around her. Sending my thoughts and prayers to her family and friends during this time of loss.

I always enjoyed talking with Betty. She did seamstress work for me and later we worked together at the Heath plant. It was good for her when she met Jim. They seemed happy.

Sincere sympathy to all of you.
