Just a few reasons I loved Betsy:
Her sense of humor... she loved to laugh.
With a sense of pride, she shared stories about her life, animals, and mostly her children.
Her love of animals.
She always showed appreciation and kindness.
Her unique, laid back and somewhat stubborn personality made her interesting, at times challenging, but certainly not boring!

I am grateful that I was blessed with the opportunity of getting to know her. Although she is gone, I hope that everyone cherishes their memories of her and finds comfort and peace in their hearts knowing she lived a full, long life. May her beautiful soul rest in peace and continue to bless her family and friends from above.
