I met Mrs. Betty in July 2007, better yet she met me. I arrived here in Iowa City in a new apartment with 2 grand children and an adult daughter. A new start. She seen us sitting outside and introduced herself with toys and treats for the children. She was a natural born giver of love. I will always think of kindness when I reflect on the good times we've had, down thru the years. Until we meet in Heaven take your rest Mrs.Betty.
Love,
Linda "Big Mama" Moore
