  7. What a sad time for all of us who knew Betty, a wonderful, spunky in your face when need be person who had the patience of job when she taught continuing ed classes..We were email friends forever and when her emails came I was always in awe at the content or laughing my head off. I hate to think of not getting more. She could figure people out and effectively deal with their problems with both compassion and a no nonsence approach. Heaven has a special new resident.A wonderful friend. My love and prayer go to you and your family.
