It would be hard to find a sweeter and kinder woman than my Aunt Betty. She was the picture of Southern charm and class, and I always looked forward to my visits and chats with her. I miss hearing her voice.

I had to pause and smile when I came across shots of Betty while going through old pictures with my fiancée just a few nights ago. Her presence was a balm, and her smile was infectious. I'll always remember her with great love.
