    What a wonderful friend I had in Betty. She could sure tell it like it is and meant what she said. I enjoyed sitting with her and talking with her at her home. I also enjoyed our rides to Carlsbad or Roswell with us chatting all the way there and back. I have missed her since moving. She loved her children and grandchildren and always had a good word to share about them.
