I knew Ms. Betsy back when I was cutting hair. She was such a happy and full of life lady. Anyone who knew her or came in contact with her was a better person afterwards than they were before. I loved seeing her and talking with her.

I haven't seen Betsy in a few years but always loved being in her presence...she was a very talented and caring person. She was always involved in art here and loved being with people. I will miss her very much.
