Although I never got to meet Betty face to face, her love, faith, and prayers changed my life and the life of my family. To have known her only through on line communication has been one of the greatest blessing in my life. She will be missed.

What a priviledge it was to see our Saviour through Betty's surrendered, obedient life!
