Sis Betty the 11 months of getting to know you have meant everything to me and Jenna. We have watched you stand strong for your family and husband. It is an honor to get to stand by you one last time. It’s hard that you are gone but you will never be forgotten. We will continue the prayers that you have prayed. Me and Jenna are gonna miss you when we get married in March, but we will know that your still gonna be there with our other angels that overshadow us. We love you Douglas and Jenna Bellmore.
