I first met Betsy when her daughter was in my first grade class. She had a great attitude and was so supportive of our class activities. Many years later she joined our quilt group. It made me so happy to see her again get to know her creative side I will miss her. My prayers are with you all. Love to Mary Ellen. Anita Jenkins
