So sorry to hear about Betty
She was a wonderful person and meant the world to all of us.Butch always enjoyed Talkin Baseball and teasing her about the Braves. I'm sure they're up in heaven now watching a baseball game. I couldn't believe Betty passed away on the 21st of January the same day which Butch passed away on last year,they were so close I guess it was meant to be.Your in my thoughts and prayers love Susie.

She seemed like a Granny to me. I never got to know her like I would want to, only for a short time, but, she was the most sweetest person. She was always greeting me with a smile and she wore that smile most always as the day went on.
As we sat and talked, I soon discovered that she, like most mothers, loved her children, and wanted more than anything to see them happy. Her days seemed to begin and end with love that she had for her family and those around her.
I am truly a very blessed and privileged person to have known her. She loved the Lord and talked a lot about going on to heaven to meet Him, her husband and her son.
May God give His comfort to ALL the family, I want you to know, as I am sure you already know, that you too, have been blessed to have her in your life.
With love and prayers to all,
Margaret (Honeycutt) Ward

My heart is shattered knowing I don't get to see you or talk to you on this side of life again. You were such a staple in my life and I miss you so much already. I am sorry your last days were such a struggle. I am very glad that you're now pain free and with God, papaw, Buddy and many others gone on before. I love you!
