Betty is like a mother to me. and I mean that in the true sense of the word . I remember her laugh and so full of energy. I will truly miss and love her. I know she is now with Dad both enjoying the life with each other in heaven. So many memories I have flash into my mind. . Betty was my example of a Mom, she taught me how to make home made banana cream pie and so much more., remembering all the fun family things I enjoyed be privileged to be a part of. To the family, I wish I was able to hug you all and tell you how much I love you and I will always keep your mom close to my heart. She is with God now. and till we meet again. I will cherish her memory. love you all Sue and Carlos Lopez
