I have had the honor of knowing betty through her battle with cancer as her pharmacist. I had a nice long chat with her on a sat around 2 months ago in our waiting area and that chat will always be in my mind. She told me the reason we all should be happy when our alarm goes off and time to get the day going. Betty, you will never be forgotten and thank you for the wisdom and courage you gave me
