Aunt Betty will always have deep red hair, a great laugh, and a good sense of fun in my memories. I cherish the time we had together. Sending love and prayers for comfort and peace. Much love, Julie

I truly love and will miss my godmother Aunt Betty. Memories of visiting all our extended Indiana and Illinois family will always remain highlights of my life. Aunt Betty's laughter will be with me always, and I can hear her saying 'Nat and you kids get out of the kitchen and go play outside!' even now in my head. Keeping all our family in our thoughts and prayers. All our love to you all. -Paul & Lynn Miller
