  1. Jack of all trades, master of none

    My heart is still hurting. Betty was one of the funniest people I ever met and kept myself and the other folks that work at the Ross in Richmond in stitches. I guess it was meant to be that she came to Richmond to see Kelly and we all (Ross associates in Richmond) got to see her beautiful smiling face when she came to the store the week before she died. Kevin and Kelly, you mother was a beautiful, shining diamond and will illuminate your hearts forever. My prayers are with you.

  2. Sending Condolences

    I am shocked about the passing of Betty. I just found out through friends at Ross in RVA. Betty was a fun and very caring person who I enjoyed working with at Ross in Richmond. I know her kids were her life. She will definitely be missed by many. Condolences to her family and many friends. Rest in peace my dear friend.

  3. I am so devastated about the passing of my friend. She loved her family so much. Kevin and Kelly, you were her pride and joy, her greatest accomplishments. She loved her friends just like family. I am so thankful for all the memories both good and bad. I loved Betty and know she loved me. If I can do anything for you please let me know. Love to all

  4. Sincere Sympathy

    I cannot believe she is gone. There are no words. She was so sad over losing her Mom. May God be with each and every member of her family in the months ahead without her. Lots of love from my home to yours.

  5. Kevin, Kelly, and Johnny,
    We are heartbroken over the loss of your mama and sister. Betty was such a good friend to us! We can’t believe she is gone! Sending our love and prayers to all of you!! Please let us know if there is anything we can do for y’all! ❤🙏❤

  6. You will always be loved

    I have only known Betty for just over a year. During that time, she made such a positive impact in my life. From the moment I met her, she welcomed me with open arms, immediately bringing me into her family. She is very special and made you feel that way too. A super proud mom, her children are her everything.

    My love and prayers for Kevin, Kelly and Johnny during this difficult time. She will always be with us and always be loved.
