Condolences

Grandma Betty, you will be missed dearly by those who knew you. I love you and regret I allowed time and distance to build a gap in our relationship. I have many great memories as kid staying with you and Pawpaw. Still remember how every supper was us sitting around the table and talking. I miss that. The infamous closet in the den that had all the games that was like treasure chest to a kid! All the scrabble games we played.... I still love to play scrabble. Though I don’t cheat like you always busted me for back then..... No peeking in the dictionary!! Swimming in the hot tub, hanging out on the porch watching the hummingbirds and just following you around doing housework are some of the best memories I love. Hope your dancing your heart out to all the swamp pop you can handle. Love you Grandma.... ~Michelle

Momma, I love you always and I'll see you there, Bonnie My song for you is Shine On by Dolly Parton.... The greatest gift, the gift of life The gift of love divine God gave us all a special gift He meant for it to shine He meant for it to shine The darkest night can be made light By one bright word or smile If we'd put on our neighbor's shoes And choose to walk a mile God gave us all our own free will To choose the paths we take No greater deed could e'er be done Than for another's sake The greatest gift, the gift of life The gift of love divine God gave us all a special gift He meant for it to shine He meant for it to shine Shine on, shine on, for all to see God's light inside your soul Shine on, shine on, let love flow free Warm others in its glow Shine on, shine on, shine on So hide it not or it will fade Shine on, shine on, shine on Shine on, shine on, shine on The greatest gift, the gift of life The gift of love divine God gave us all a special gift He meant for it to shine Shine on, shine on, shine on

Betty was a great friend. We laughed, cried and consoled each other over life's ups and downs. She will live on in my heart. I'm going to miss her. Rest in peace my friend.

Betty and I have been friends since 1975 when my late husband, Al, and I moved to Denham Springs. I will truly miss her. Betty drove me to the hospital when my son, Jeff, was born shortly after we met. Over the past forty-four years we remained friends long distance as I lived in several states during that time. Our phone conversations were always spirited and lengthy and covered so many subjects such as faith, family and politics. We shared cards during holidays. I could always expect a Christmas card from Betty that would have a pretty winter home scene with lots of glitter on it. On a few occasions I visited Betty and we shared times of sorrow and joy. Words cannot describe how much I loved Betty like an older sister. My prayers will be for her family to remember all the great qualities that Betty exemplified. Debra Kleemeyer
