My husband and I would like to express our sincere sympathy to the family and friends of your beloved Betty. Although we never had the opportunity to meet Betty personally we wanted to share with you comfort from Gods word found in John 5:28,29. Jesus showed us a wonderful example of the resurrection when he resurrected Lazarus here on earth back to the arms of those he loved. (John 11) Remember also that our heavenly father expresses his loving compassion for all of us when someone we love dies. (Psalm 34:18) Be sure to share your memories with those who surround you, for the memories shared are the ones most truly cherished,may they bring you a sense of peace and joy to your hearts as you begin to heal. Take care of yourselves and each other during this very difficult time.

My friend and I went to see Miss Betty a few weeks ago. She was so proud of her tree and her angel. We had to turn them both on and she seemed to be doing so well. We took her a piece of cake. We were going back to see her this week and take some zucchini bread. We discussed the Lide family name. My Daddy was a Lide from Alabama and he grew up in Bennetsville. Daddy was a veterinarian he in Newberry. May God grant you peace at this time.
