  • I’m so sorry for your family’s loss. My name is Tina and I was Bettys home health aid since the beginning of the summer. She loved her flowers and always cared how her yard looked. I’m so grateful I got to be apart of her life. We would sit and talk about her family a lot or she would just tell me stories of things she did when she was younger. I’m going to miss seeing her every day but I know she’s in a better place now.

  • I am so sorry for your loss. Betty was like a big sister to me. We had so many good times and adventures. Lots of laughs while helping her do her hair in the kitchen and going shopping. Our favorite lunch was always China Buffet. I am truly going to miss her.
