"I would like to offer my condolences to Betty's family. I worked with Betty in the Pathology department for many years. She was such a delight to be around. She was one of my favorites, and I have always remembered her with fondness. I loved her British accent!
May God bless Betty and her family.
Robin Jones, MD."

"Carl, and family,
Sign Condolence Book
I am so saddened to see that Betty has passed. We stayed in contact for the past 4 decades with calls and Christmas cards. Bill and I last saw her in April, 2011 on our way through LR. We had a very nice o/n visit with her during a power outage. Your mom, and dad, got me through some tough times as a newly divorced mother working at NCTR--late 70's. We sure had some fun times together. I worried when I couldn't contact her this Christmas. She was a special friend to me. So sorry for your loss."
