Betty was special because of her face! Her fabulous face and especially her smile! She made everyone smile. She had an air of innocence yet was the strongest person I know. She cared about others. She seldom complained and carried herself with dignity and love even till the end.
The enclosed lyrics, “I’ve Grown Accustomed To Her Face” from one of Betty’s favorite musicals (My Fair Lady), are especially meaningful when said or sung with her in mind.
She was a smile maker, a dream maker, and one hell of a fighter.
