  1. You are in our hearts and prayers. We loved her. She was beautiful inside and out. Have fond memories of her. Love you.

  2. Bobby and Cathy,

    I am so sorry for your loss. Losing Grandaddy so young, felt as if we always had a connection through Betty to him. I love you guys. RIP Betty.


  3. Cathy,

    I am so sorry for your loss. I know there is nothing I can say to ease the pain but just know I have you and your dad in my prayers.



  4. We were sorry to hear about Betty’s passing but we know that she is in a better place. We will never forget the friendship we had while going to the church in Douglasville and in Forest Park. Lisa always called you Butter & Sis Bean. We will also never forget the sermon you preached using Terry’s car breakdown and the sandpaper. We would love to come but we live in North Carolina now so we can’t. If we can locate a phone number, we will try to call you. May God comfort you, Pastor Beam, and Kathy. We love you!

  5. We will never forget her. Betty was a part of our Kroger family here a Northlake. None other could make a Holiday as Betty could sitting behind the piano with her bright festive clothing and cheerie smile! Little did we know all the work she put in all the events she helped plan for our office and enjoyment. Those were the days! I just know we will all meet again for a greater celebrations….
