To Betty's family :

We want to express our sincere heartfelt condolences for the loss of your mother, sister, aunt. We have known Betty for many years, taking care of the lawn and some years the snow ,but we also felt quite close to her as a friend. She was always sweet, hospitable and friendly and we enjoyed chatting with her when we cut the grass. She had a positive spirit and often said she felt close to God when she was outside. We will always remember her fondly and truly enjoyed knowing her for these many years. Our sympathy to you all,
Sincerely, Mike + Angie Husk
