We little knew that on Sept.21 our God was going to call Betty home.
In life we loved her dearly; in death we do the same It broke our hearts to lose her,she did not go alone.For part of us went with her on Friday. Betty left us with peaceful memories, your love is still our guide, and thought we cannot see you, you are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same, But as God call us one by one, the chain will link again. Your in our thoughts and prayers xx oo
