Alford and Martha Piercy

Sweet Aunt Betty, your voice was like the color blue--calm and serene. Your laughter was like a bubbling brook with sunlight glinting on the water. Your hugs were full of the warmth of the Lord's love. We will miss you here among us, but we know we will all be together again. Love, Martha and Alford Piercy

I was so sad to hear of the passing of Betty. I've known her and Mac for 38 years, and you'd never find a sweeter lady. She will be very missed by all who knew her. Sharon Newell
