  1. Betty was a kind, sweet woman and I will sorely miss her effervescent sense of humor. She was truly my favorite customer & one of a kind.
    She loved her family so much, my heart goes out to all of you.

  2. I did not know aunt Betty for a long time. In that time I believe that we became friends. She would tease me and I would tease her back as only friends do. I always looked forward to our conversations and to holding her hand.

    I miss you, aunt Betty. See you on the other side when my time comes.

  3. I met Betty first back in 1984 when Emi and I were seniors in high school. She and Melvin would drive up to Seattle every year.

    She was a warm, loving and giving person. I loved spending time with her and listen to her stories over the years. In fact, Betty cracked jokes, told stories even in her final days while knowing she is passing.

    I learned a lot by just observing and admiring her positive energy and strength. Rest in peace aunt Betty and we all will see you on the other side when the time comes. Your thoughts and positive energy will always be with us.
