  1. Revelation 21:4
    And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

  2. My darling cousin. Best friend for life to my mom and sweet friend to me, my children and grandchildren. The Garner family will miss you but we know your happiness and laughter have been restored in heaven. God speed.

  3. I am sorry for your loss. God is the source of life and an enemy of death. His Word can help us endure during difficult times like this. Acts 24:15 gives us a beautiful hope of a resurrection for those we have lost in death; and we look forward to seeing our loved ones again soon.

  4. I am so for your your loss. Betty and Chick have always been a 2nd mom and dad to Renee and I. As well as grandparents to Heather and Melissa. Take solace that she is no longer in pain and is back with Chick. I will always love her.

  5. Gary and Linda I am so very sorry for your loss! Your both were very lucky to have had such a wonderful lady to call Mom. Prayers to you both and your family!

  6. Betty is the best person I know. She embraced life and everyone she met. She has left a huge footprint on this world. I am so grateful to have been blessed to know her. She will be missed.

  7. My mother Martha Waters Woodyard loved to share stories of how she and Betty were born only 3 weeks apart and loved to play paper dolls together in the barn. We loved Betty and know there is a “glad reunion day” in Heaven. What a lovely lady…she will be greatly missed.

  8. Only our grandsons graduation would have kept us from being at the service to honor a lady we have loved for as long as I can remember. Our sympathies to Linda, Gary, Mary and their entire families – she was a wonderful lady.

  9. Miss Betty who is the biggest Dawg Fan I know. I’m a GT fan so needless to say she gave me a lot of crap. She came by one night and stole the Georgia Tech flag off of our porch. And then stop by the next day to ask me what happened to my flag the whole time she had it in the back of her car. But that was Miss Betty always into something. We are all going to miss you. Love you miss Betty!

    Go Dawgs!!!!
