    I was truly blessed to be a part of Betty’s huge circle of loved ones. There has never been a more caring, giving, genuine and loving angel. She now has her real set of wings and halo and I know will be watching over all her loving family and friends. She will always be a part of me.
    I love her dearly.

    Dear DR Lichter.

    I am in complete shock after being told of Betty’s passing. She was truley a wonderful and compassionate person. That great big smile of hers would always make me feel better whenever I walked in to your office in pain. I am at a complete loss of words and the words alone can not express my feelings at this time. I can say for sure that this world is a much better place because of beautiful people like her and you .

    GOD BLESS.

    Sadly,

    Dear Mike, Tori, Vicki and Tracy,
    So sorry about your Mom and Grandmother. The few times we met at Tracy’s birthday parties, we remember the joy and laughter she brought to those celebrations. She was truly a giving person.
    Love all of you;
    Jane and Anna
