I knew Betty before she married Clifford.  We have had many experiences together through the years.  Christy was a good friend of our daughter Virginia.  Virgil& I gave Craig the nickname of "Little Professor" when he came to Jet Cadets as a child.  Betty was a strong person & never complained.  She will be missed.
