    "The Best things in Life are the People we Love, the Memories we've made and being an ALABAMA CRIMSON TIDE Fan." Mary Sue found these words on a plaque in a gift shop and bought it. We both thought it would be a great gift for our best friends, Win And Betty. The phrases, People We Love, Memories We've Made and being an Alabama fan accurately describe our feelings about Betty and Win.
    Betty left us too soon. God must have needed help from a positive, loving, always smiling lady. He certainly got the best!

    I knew Betty from our earliest childhood. She was a great friend and a great lady. I owe my SF career to her. God bless you all.l

    Matt couldn't have said it better. I will miss your hugs the most. The last one I got was just before Hurricane Irma...you whispered in my ear I was in good hands.

    You were the rock of your family and left large shoes to fill. Family pizza nights will always have your love present.
