    Betty was an absolutely amazing woman. Her and Manuel were the best neighbors I could ask for. All of you! You have all meant so much to my dad and I in this lifetime. She was always so excited, and so welcoming. Her hugs always made you feel at ease ❤️
    I am devastated that time went so quickly and the opportunity to share my love for her, with her, passed with all the “tomorrow”’s. So please, know that in her stead.
    Love you all!
