Tim & Family: I am so sorry to hear of Betty's passing. I feel fortunate to have known her. Our cubicles were close together and we had many a talk when she was working at the PORTS plant. I remember there was alwaus something that made her smile. She was such a fighter and always hopeful. The Florida condo was a big dream, and even bigger was fixing it up and furnishing it. I am so glad she got to enjoy it for several years. Tim, it goes without saying you are a friend, and my heart goes out to you for this loss. I know she is walking streets of gold in heaven, and making it glow even brigher. Take care. Dan
