Betty always had a smile when she greeted you. She was just as nice as she was Beautiful! She was a great asset to the Webb City School District.

Sue, so sorry about your mom. From the picture, she hasn't changed a bit. Still beautiful. I think of you all every time I remember the old neighborhood.
