Betty Arnold was my Other Mother for all of my childhood and that continued on throughout my entire life! If I wasnt at Lisas house than Lisa was at mine always! Betty treated me as if I was one of her own children as so did the rest of the family...she was ALWAYS there for all of the important moments and just about all of my memories of growing up included her. Even as an adult, I could always count her for any and everything! The night I found out I was pregnant with my oldest child, Nathan and I had finally realized that it was time for me to make the right choice and go back home to my parents the first person I called was Lisa Lynn and of course Betty was right there with her and the minute Lisa told her what was wrong both her and Betty jumped in their car (after calling my Mom and Dad and telling them) and the next thing I remember is hearing the tires squealing and looking up and rounding the corner coming to my rescue was Betty and Lisa! Followed closely by my parents however My Dad was not the dare devil speed racer that Betty was that night She saved me that night and it is things like that that made her such a wonderful woman, Mother and just all around great person. I also will never forget that she always smelled like Este Lauder perfume and think of the beautiful silver/blue eye shadow she wore When her and Charlie moved out of the house across the street from me a few years ago things were just never the same on our block. I hated not being able to look out my kitchen window and see their house across the street...I of course see the house but its not the house that I have always considered my second home. Ive missed her being there so close for so many years as my neighbor. Now she will definitely be missed and maybe even envied just a little as she begins her life in Heaven! She is absolutely in a better place than any of us here on Earth and I know in my heart that shes probably there with my Mom and Dad and Eddie and theyre sitting at the table playing Canasta, looking down on us and keeping us all safe as our Guardian Angel. I loved Bettyand thought of her as my family as much as I did my own family and will never forget her and the major role she played in making me the woman I am to this day. Rest In Peace Betty
