Brookie, Brent, and Brad, I am so very sorry for you loss. We all spent many days together. Betty Lou always made me laugh.. I remember one thing that sticks out in my mind, we went to BG in her truck, when we pulled into mall and got out we heard something, her cat was underneath the truck.. we laughed, such a special person to me..Prayers for all of you at this hard time in your life.. I love you all. <3
