To Randal and Wesley my deepest condolences. I loved her like my mom. We shared a wonderful friendship that lasted 40 years. Betty and John meant the world to me and I thank God for sending them to me. I learned so much from Betty. My heart hurts at the loss at the talks we will no longer share. But I know she is happy now and at peace. She is now back with John. She will be greatly missed. I wanted you guys to know how much I appreciated both John and Betty. My prayer for you is for God's blessings and comfort. Love Always, Yvette
