In school Betty and I shared a couple classes together. She was a quiet sweetie with a gentle smile, and if I could get her going, she would light up and be so funny and cute. However, back in those days I spent more time with my Wichita buddies than hometown classmates, so I missed the opportunity to really be a one-on-one friend with her, and that was to my own loss as Betty had a good heart and would have made a wonderful lifetime friend. 

My prayers and condolences go out to her friends and family. May they find inner peace during this time of heart-felt loss, and may they find joy through all the love Betty freely gave to so many.

Sincerely, Connie Hale Rhodes
