    We send our deepest sympathy and love to Uncle Bobby and all the family. We have such wonderful memories of Aunt Betty. She had the kindest soul and sweetest smile. She gave her unconditional love and support to me all of my life and extended that love to my children as they were growing up. Aunt Betty will never be forgotten and will live in our hearts forever.

    We would like to extend or heart felt sympathy and prayers to Uncle Bobby and the entire Harper family. Some of my most fond memories are the many days and nights I spent in there home. Aunt Betty would always welcome the large number of kids that spent numerous hours around her home. She would feed us and care for us as if we were all her own children. She even but up with the late night board games that kept anyone in the house including her from sleeping. The most important thing she did was set an example to our generation on how to live a Godly life. I will forever miss her but will find peace in the fact that she is no longer suffering and will be in heaven waiting on us with my mom and dad by her side.

    To Tammy and family…My thoughts are with you all on this challenging day of laying her to rest. It is so difficult for us who are in physical form to let go of those we love who have transitioned. Reading all of these beautiful heartfelt postings from your friends and family tells me that heaven has gained another angel. I wish I could have known her, but since I know Tammy as one of my dearest friends, I realize that Betty was an extraordinary mother, friend, and confidant to many. I know that God will have his arms wrapped around her and all of you during this difficult time. Sending you all of my love and support today and in the days that follow. Betty is at peace. I hope that all of you will also find the same today. Love from Greenbrier. Fly high sweet lady.

    To the Harper family- our family was saddened to hear of the passing of Mrs. Harper- the memories we have of playing baseball and football in your front yard when we were young on Hite street are some of my fondest memories including Mr. Harper passing the football and pitching the baseball to us “Hite Street Hoodlums” lol-Though those days are gone the memories stay w us and are part of who we are now. I remember your mom being a great lady and I can hear her now calling y’all in for dinner. She is with God now and he is with you all- always feel her presence and she will be amongst you- Love to you all!!
