My aunt Betty was a beautiful person and human being. Growing up in the holler with her, Uncle Kenny, Jimmy and Lori was the best time of my life. Aunt Betty was always there with a smile and a hug and always happy to see you. She had the sweetest disposition of anyone I knew. I remember many times her making lunches for us kids and dinners and our family dinners on special holidays. She was always helping Mamaw prepare those big family dinners and never complained about the work. She made sure you felt welcomed no matter what she was doing, always giving of herself and never asking for anything in return. I have never met a more kind person and I don't think I ever will. I loved her and still love her and will miss her terribly. I have nothing but good memories of her and our families being together and having fun and that is what I will hold on to in the future. Uncle Kenny and Jimmy, know that I love you and am holding you both in my heart now and always. You were both blessed to have her and in dark moments always remember her love she had for you all and her sweet smile. --Angie
