I believe with all of my heart the God puts angels here to live among us and I truly believe that this lady was one of those such miracles. I have so many memories with this family that they are too many to share. My mom became a nurse because of the influence of Ms. Walthall. Ms. Betty you will be greatly missed by your family and friends. Thank you for everything you did for me during my younger years. I know God has you in his loving arms and you are at peace.
