My sincere condolences to Betty’s family, especially to Joe Sr, who faithfully visiting Betty every day with a rare exception. He was so punctual we could almost set our watches by his arrival. I would also like to extend special condolences to Joe Jr and his sister Joellen. Without their commitment to their parents those daily visits would not have been possible, you both were a shining example of love for the family. May Betty Rest In Peace.
