I was so sorry to hear of Betty’s passing. We worked together for the NY Telephone Co. on Wards Lane in Menands.

I have fond memories of Betty, she was a very positive influence in my life. She was extremely encouraging and I appreciated her advice. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this very difficult time.
