Betty and I used to work together at Strother Drug Company many years ago. She was a dear friend of mine at that time. Just would like the family to know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Betty was a wonderful friend and lady, and I know that no one can replace her in your lives.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Betty and Frank were my second set of parents growing up. Started on Homewood Drive and then on Rainbow Forest Dr. Loved them both so much. Please know that I will continue to keep you in my prayers during this season. I know that my Mom is welcoming her in heaven with open arms. Love Roxanne
