Sending our heartfelt sympathy to all the West family. Betty was a beautiful, loving woman, Mom, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, Aunt, etc...etc... I will miss you calling to know what the names of the new born babies are to put in your wonderful ancestry book. What a great job you did. Thank you so much for all the angel food cakes throughout the years. So many memories of Grandma Ethel and Mom visiting with you. I know you are with all the family in heaven. God Bless and sending prayers for all the family.
