Dear sweet Betty. I remember the happy times over the years when I would visit Carol and Alan, sharing that we both were mothers of twins. It was my pleasure to know you. You were greatly loved, blessed and will be dearly missed! I know you are safe in the arms of the Lord.

The loss of Mrs. Betty Ruth Ferguson a cherished loved one is the most devastating experiences a family can face. At times, the loss may seem unbearable. Please know that there are people who care and more importantly Psalm 34:18 tells us that "God is near to those that are broken at heart. He is the God of all comfort. My prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time of grief.
