To the family; My prayers will be with you as you go through the lost of Bette. I was a CNA at the Heritage and I had the privilege of taking care of her. She was a wonderful lady and always had a smile on her face. She had such a peace about her that would melt my heart every time I saw her. We had many wonderful talks together and those times were very special. We often talked about God and oh how we would pray for one another. I will always have a special place in my heart for Bette. God Bless You All

Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
