To all Betty's family: I was sorry to read of Betty's death. I have known all her children and I want you to know that I enjoyed visiting with her in Avalon. I loved her paintings and she was always so glad to visit with me and my visiting partner Lois. She was a beautiful lad. Praying for comfort and God's richest blessing on all the family.

Lou, Van and Linda, I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. I just have wonderful memories of your Mom and all the sewing she did. She was my hero! I remember so fondly of the times that I would come and stay with y'all during the summer when y'all lived in that subdivision, now the name escapes my mind, but great memories there of Lou and Linda cooking, and us making pop corn and drinking sweet tea! And wow she reminds me so much of Gran in this picture. I just loved your Mom and family and was so touched by all her creativeness and I remember all those Christmas reindeers that she and Uncle Dan made. There was no stopping all the things that she did. She really was my inspiration in learning to sew. So one year when I was probably about 14 or 15 we were all at Gran's for Christmas and I had made a smock for Mary Catherine who was probably about 7 and Deborah who was about 4 or 5, and when Aunt Betty saw what I had made for them she was so proud of me, and that started my joy in getting into sewing. I've done a lot of sewing but not nearly as good as she did. She was an amazing seamstress! I loved her so much, and cherish all the memories we had growing up. I know you will all miss her, but our time and season belong to the Lord. Love and blessings to you all, and miss seeing you all. Since I live north of Atlanta I will not be able to be there, but you are all in my thoughts and prayers for the Lord to bring you comfort. Love, Judy Gray Leo
