We are so heartbroken. Our love for Betty or as Sonny called her ma is undefinable. Jesus had taken her he only chooses the most beautiful flowers for his garden. And.this time he chose the beautiful flower in our garden
Though we lost that flower the effects of love and growth continue. Betty we love you so much. Another call we will never receive again. May you rest in his glorious garden.
