I’m so blessed to have known Betty as a loving stand-in mother when my own mother was a continent away. She was a strong lady, a consummate lady, in every sense of the word, and she and Robert Sr. raised a family to be proud of. Betty, thank you for including me in that circle. I’ll always love and miss you.
