David,Cindy, and Debbie,We are all saddened at the passing of Betty.We shared many good memories of her attendingand celebrating with us the grandchildren's graduations, special birthdays. She loved to cook and she was definetely talented in that  area as well as a good decorator. She was a hard worker in general like you wrote Dave.Rex passed away Nov. 26th 2010 and Betty missed him so very much.She kept so very busy after that. trying to feel the void of not having him with her anymore.There are times along life's journey,  that can test our spirits deeply. We have all had a difficult year of loosing Geneva and Lonnie as well.Betty said she was ready to go . This was the greatest statement because  when the Lord says its time to go we better be able to  make this statement from our hearts. When you all need just give us a call. We love you.Uncle Larry and Aunt Patsy
