I am so sorry for your loss of Ms. Betty. She was a wonderful woman and God saw her struggling and took her home. We know that Mr. Bill was waiting on her at the gates, so she would not be alone. They are now together and smiling down on all of you. She will never be forgotten and neither will Mr. Bill.
She will be deeply missed, I cared for her as my own grandmother. I love y’all and if there is anything I can do please say the word.
It has been with great pleasure to have had the years I did getting to know you. I will forever remember all the many life lessons we talked about. I will remember all the words of wisdom you shared, and the light you had radiating off of you. Your heart and love for Jesus and others will be shared and passed on. Thank you Jesus for Granny. I know she’s home and peaceful; let all those who love her feel the warmth of her heavenly light shining over them. Smiling with Grandpa in heaven. Till we see each other again, fly high Granny!
