  • Betty was a wonderful, sweet and caring person. I only knew her for a couple of years,but she left great impression! I had not seen her since 12/14/02 nor had I spoken with her so it was very sad to see that she had passed. I know she is healthy, happy and at peace now. We were able to get to know one another through the Ostomy support group. Betty was always wanting to help in any way she could for others. We are all so fortunate to say we knew her and had her as a friend.
