She was a "second mother" to me. I have lots and lots of life time long memories.

Only having met Betsy once or twice, I can say that she must have live a charitable and giving life because she has raised a son to be one of the most charitable men I know. Well Done, Betsy!!

I wish I could have met Betsy because her son David is one of my most favorite people. My prayers are with you, David.
Love, Vicki

It is with sadness that I have learned of Betsy's passing. Although my time with her was short, I always looked forward to being with her.  She openly shared her many years of wisdom, was always gracious, and was most proud of her greatest accomplishment... her boys. May you rest in peace, my friend. To her family, I extend my sympathies.

I too would have have loved to have met Betsy. She must have been a most amazing woman. The fact that she instilled so much love in her family says so much.  All my love and support goes out to you, David, and your family. I love you!
