Both my parents were wonderful,patience, and kind. What a terrific childhood. Their example of God,country, and work ethics has serve the purpose intended to raise a family in the right direction. We have been blessed to be a part of their family.

When I think of Betty I think of her sweet smile first. She and Ruben almost always made it to class reunions and we so enjoyed them. She never lost that smile even though I know at time she didn't really feel like smiling. We'll all miss her, but I'm sure the angels are smiling now.
