3 Condolences for Betty Anne Cox
Betty Anne and Ron took me and my 2 children under their wings and have treated me like family for as long as I have known them. Betty Anne was a blessing in my life and I will miss her a great deal. Rest in peace sweet lady.
My thoughts and prayers are with Betty Ann’s family now. I watched her over the past few months fight and a battle that was both admirable and honest. She loved her husband and children with all that she had. She had many fond memories over the years and enjoyed sharing those memories with me. I will forever hold her ,Ronnie and the girls, close in my thoughts. As she moves to the next level, may God always hold her close and offer the peace of eternity to her family. With heart and soul I wish you all comfort and care in this difficult time of loss.
I will always be grateful to Betty Anne for her wonderful patience, guidance and kindness. While under her tutelage, my friends and I were forever bonded as hopeless Mahjong players, and great friends. Because of Betty Anne, not only did our game playing skills improve, but our friendships flourish as well. I always enjoyed her company, as well as that of all of her lovely family. I am grateful for having the opportunity to have met her and enjoyed her warm smile.
