I can remember some fun times in summers I would come and stay with Chris and the wonderful meals Betty would make. We visited her and Aunt Fannie at the Fashion Shop. It was fun to look around at all the clothes. I'll never forget the picnics at the Fair grounds and especially when I rode on Chris's horse and it took off with me on it across the track. I held on for dear life and then we had a big laugh. Betty was always so kind and welcoming to all.

We will miss her and always have love in our hearts for her. Many blessings to those left behind and keep her memory in your heart.

My sincere sympathy to all the family on the loss of Betty Scott; your mom, grandma, great-grandma, aunt, mother-in-law, etc. and friend. She will be greatly missed. May your memory's of the fun times with her comfort your hearts.

I will be unable to come to visit you at the funeral home because I am starting to work nights on Sunday night caring for twin boys. I will be getting off work on Wed. morning, and have to get home to bed to work again that night.

My love goes out to all of you.
