  2. Betsy had a beautiful gift, she was able to make anyone smile no matter what kind of day they were having. She loved everyone and prayed for all of us everyday and ALWAYS had a hug for each of us (even if it was just so she could sniff my hair). She loved Stan more than anything in her life. She wanted nothing more than to be with him, to celebrate Birthdays and Holidays, and to just love one another in the special way they always did. I love you Elizabutsy!
