So very sorry about your mom. I played golf with her for several years, and attended church together. Such a sweet lady. Prayers for your family.

Betty was an old friend of my parents from when she lived at Lake Lotaawana. She had her own beauty shop at Lake Lotaawana and she was also my mom’s hair dresser. She was a very friendly and spunky gal and a lot fun to be around. Hugs and prayers go out to her family. Heaven gained a bright and shining angel. I hope she stopped to say hi and hug my mom in her travels through heaven.
