Betty was always like a burst of Sunshine in a room! I remember the 1st time we met & both of our babies were sick at the Dr's office. She loved her Baby Yelonda with all of heart She Loved her Parents & her Brothers Dearly. Most of all, She Loved The Lord. Wish I knew about the Chicken Pie Until We Meet Again, Rest Betty Cause We Are Gonna Have a Good Time Dancing & Praising The Lord!!
