I loved working with Betty over her 25 years at the ADJ. We had a GREAT team back them and she was a key part of it at the office and the parties we use to have. She and Roger's relationship was wonderful to see an she was always talking about Greg and Tammy and the grandkids. A one-of-a-kind, classy lady who will be missed while her memory will be cherished.
