My heart was truly broken upon hearing of Aunt Bettie Lou’s passing. She was a strength in this family and someone I looked up to all my life. I will miss her smile and her laughter. I take great comfort in knowing that she’s in a better place and he’s with my mom. Please let me know if there’s anything I can do for you during this difficult time. Know that I love you all very much
