Bobby, I have not seen you in many years but was able to see Betty when I worked with the GaDOE during their yearly Safety Program. I always had lots of respect for you and Betty. You and your children will be in my prayers. I remember Harry Harrison saying that he wanted Betty to be the driver that replaced him at his retirement. Betty had the gift to LOVE the lovely and unlovely, and touched many lives over her years serving the students within Hall County. God has a special spot for her in heaven and she is whole and well again!! Well Done Betty Lee!!

Betty was one of the sweetest people I have ever know. I had the privilege of driving out of Lanier with her for 12+ years. I love her and am going to miss her. She was like a sister to me. Rest In Peace and I hope we meet again.
