    My heart is heavy having just received the news of Bettie’s passing. We were friends for over 45 years. We were both Art and Photography instructors in the Phoenix Union High School District. I will miss you my dear friend.

    It will take time to absorb the news. We had wonderful island vacations, trips to Europe.. family fun over a lifetime of friendship since USAFA and pilot training days. We will cherish the memories of the good times.
    We are praying for Betties’ family, and will support in any way we can.
