    Linda and Jerry~ I am so sorry for your loss. My heart is aching for you. Betty was my sunshine and as she would say my “Tweety pie”. It was such an honor to be her nurse for 9 years. I will remember all the laughs we had, she and I would always get tickled about something and laugh forever. She became like a grandma to me in the years I knew her. I will never forget you Betty Louise! Love & Prayers~ Bobbi Jean Saldivar

    I am Sue Marshall Wright and I lived down the street when you both were little. I knew your mom and dad both so well. I had lost track of you girls and your mom. Betty was such a happy person and always laughing. My brother was Dan Snodgrass and my sister was Linda Kay. I hope you remember us.. I hope you are doing well and God will see you through your loss.

    You have are deepest sympathy at the loss of your Mom and Grandma. I wish I had the words to comfort you during this sad time. You all are in our hearts, thoughts and prayers. Leo Buscaglia once wrote something that I believe is true and I would like to share with you at this time:
    I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love.
    Bless you All and May God be with you. Love Always.

    You have the thoughts and prayers of all the Gatch Grove crew. We are missing Betty and her sweet smile so much. She had a way of making the day brighter with her laugh and her touch. She would reach out and take our hand or pat us when we were beside her. It could cheer us up from any woe when she lit up with her smile or chuckled at herself or another resident. We hope you have all the support and care you need through this time. If there is anything we can do, please let us know.
    God be with you, you are in our prayers.
    The Gatch Grove Family

    Mary Ann, So sorry about your Mom. She was real treat to be around when we were in high school. Life throws many curve balls but we seem to have made it this far. My Dad died in 2006 and Mom died in 1972. Never thought we would have see our parents pass. Seems like yesterday that everyone was healthy and the future was always around the corner. I hope you and Mike are doing well and enjoying Texas.

    I am so sorry to hear of the death of Betty. The passing away of a loved one is always with much sorrow. May we have faith and confidence in the Bible’s promise of a time when pain, sickness and death are a thing of the past (Revelation 21:3, 4). My condolences are with the family at this difficult time.
