I'm putting this up but for now w/o a comment... frankly
I'm still in shock...
"Yesterday at around 5 pm, Betty passed at home where she wanted to be. She will forever be missed and always be loved. Sad we are left without her, but grateful she is no longer suffering. Prayers for her journey accepted. Will update on arrangements later on"
Added On Later.....
I'm really finding it hard to beleive that Betty's gone. It wasn't that long ago that she was on the forum, and I'd been in touch with her......
As soon as her obituary is availiable, I'll let you know.
Also; If you would like to post your condolences, I will copy them all in color and mail them with a card from e'one.
Ah, so sad. I met Betty's daughter Patti online and spoke with her over the phone once. I am so shocked by the news, but then again, I think Betty knew it was her time as she pulled away. Rip, Betty. May you rest in peace now and breathe easy. Many prayers go out to Patti and her family.
I am saddened by Betty's passing, sending my prayers to her family and those who knew her well. As Sue said maybe she knew and pulled away into herself for this final journey. Rest in peace Betty and breathe easy now, knowing how much you are loved.
Betty emailed me February 25th. In part she stated: “. . . I know it has been awhile since you have been on DTD but it has been a while since I have been on there too. I decided I didn’t want to go on any forum and just talk about being sick all the time. There has got to be better things to talk about that sickness all the time.. ."
She said that she was on hospice like I was and told a little how her‘s worked. Then she wrote about few things not related to health. Then she said: “...If you have time or feel up to it, email me a line and let me know how you are doing....”
I did email her back on March 3 and took her up on the offer to exchange email. I talked about TV and other things as she had done. I never heard back from her again. I find when I am feeling down, my thinking changes from day to day as to what I want.
I don’t get to the forum myself but every couple or few weeks I stop & look in the Memory and Prayer Sections just for this reason. I am so sorry to hear this news about Betty. I know she had been having a bad time for quite a while. Rest in Peace. My thoughts and prayers to the family.
If she died on Friday the 10th, that is when my husband died last year and it was his birthday, May 10th.
Here is a link to Betty's Obituary. It was mentioned here about putting it up. I didn't see it here. If posted elsewhere on the board I wasn't able to read it all and didn't mean to double up. tinyurl.com/a94yfg8

Mary; T Y for posting Betty's obituary. I'd been watching/looking for it; hadn't found it as of y'day. We truly appreciate it.
To Betty's family.....
I wish I had the right words that would express the deep sympathy I am feeling for your loss; and our loss. But I simply don't. With the pain we feel with loosing her, we also understand and accept a sense of "peace" for her. We love her, and we miss her...
I'd like to share something with you, her biological family, that Betty shared with us back in 2010 and for which she was so very proud and pleased and posted....

"Photo of the balloons we let loose with the letters attached sending all the troubles up up and away"
November 29th, 2010
And the video she put on-line of her releasing them in the parking lot, can be found at the following on You Tube with the following message here telling us about it and sending us to watch....
"There is just no way to put into words the feeling I felt and still feel everytime I watch the video. I still tear up with emotion. A very interesting and sort of unexplainable thing is, I wrote 3 pages of something and put into a envelope and I do not remember a thing I wrote. And I do not even know what lead me to even think to do this, I just knew it was the right thing for me.
When I told my daughter Terri, the one that let the balloons go, about it she went to "Walmart to look for them in the card section and they said they didn't carry them any more and I was thinking of those ones that look like foil. Well she continued on and was going to go to a flower shop but stopped into Smiths food market and there they were and they made then to order. She had all 3 of them say I Love You and they were clear with flowers and hearts on them. They went straight to the sun and as you see the rays surrounded them. What an experience. It went on much longer than the video but that is all of it that we got and must have been all that we needed"
Thank you Terri for helping Betty make this wonderful event happen!
