Oh my, my heart is broken but I am also remembering all the wonderful fun times Bette and I had. I used to work with her at Central Christian Church in the kitchen and I even cleaned her house for a time! We had so much fun and laughed all the time! She was a fantastic friend and I loved her dearly! She knew how much I loved crystal dishes even if the were not real crystal. I still have a beautiful bowl and a candy jar that she gave me. She was a huge blessing in my life! God Bless all her family and I know she is with that sweet Harold and her precious boys! Rest in Peace my sweet friend!
