My Dearest Betty, thank you for allowing me to serve you the last 2 years.Bringing you communion, sharing stories and praying with you has enriched my ministry. Your smile and friendly attitude towards everyone kept me encouraged so many times during my visits with others at Autumn Winds. You were an example of a woman of God who found room for EVERYONE at her table. I know that you are now sitting with our Lord and laughing with him as you look down on your family and church. Bless YOU for being a woman of God, a woman of Faith, and leading a life that is an example to all of us. You will be missed by your church. Rev. Pamela Dountas First United Methodist Church.
