Looking at Aunt Betty's picture makes me think of her deep, infectious laugh. Just thinking about it now makes me smile. I was very young when I spent most of my time with Aunt Betty, but even at that age I could tell that she had an impressive flare about her; a contagious energy. Aunt Betty was cool! I am very sorry to hear about your loss.

Dear George and family, on behalf of myself and my Mom, Dorothy Nolen I would like to extend our deepest sympathy to you and your family. My Mom was so upset to hear of her dear friends passing. They shared so many happy and crazy memories, what a treasure Betty was to my Mom and our Nolen family. Betty always lit up a room when she appeared, as did you George. Betty was an amazing, beautiful and classy lady who will be terribly missed. Treasure her memories and hold them close to your heart. With much love to you all, Doroth Nolen and Family.

Holly (Krebes) Hock left a message on July 26, 2007:
G.W. and Family, I wanted all of you to know that I am adding my prayers to yours for the salvation of her soul and for the comfort for each of you. She was larger than life, a legend in her own time and a woman I have admired since 1965. She has earned a Heavenly home and will get things organized up there in short order. I remember fondly when she would bring the family to the "Big Wheel Restaurant" on 53rd and Broadway and supervise the team while enjoying herself and her meal, too. She always treated me well... Four score and one year is a long life: she filled hers with love, work, passion and you are her most valuable, most cherished legacy. I thank God for your wife's and mother's life -- He shared her in a major way with each of you!! Love, Holly Hock (219-380-1555 cellular phone)

Dear Mr Wood, Lori and family, I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Mrs Wood. She was such a strong and beautiful woman. I have many wonderful childhood memories of her, the Wood family and life on Grant Street. Mrs. Wood always had her door open to the Grant St. kids. Many days and nights were spent hanging out at your home and being a part of your family. I strongly remember Lori and I waiting for Mr. and Mrs. Wood to get ready for one of their date nights, and when Mrs. Wood would come out ready to leave, I thought she was one of the most stylish and beautiful women I had ever seen, and she was! My heart goes out to all of you, as well as my prayers at this difficult time.

Susan Oliver Cohen left a message on July 24, 2007:
Dear Mr. Wood, Sandy & family: After viewing the video tribute of Betty, it brought back to mind the memories we still cherish of the Wood & Oliver families. The famous cow-bell, Buff the dog, dancing in your basement, kick the can in the alley, St. Pat's. "Woody" the dog you gave to John Tom. Our moms, Anne & Betty on the Metrical diet. Our summer plays in our backyard and Sandy & I smoking Betty's Kents in your attic. Mrs. Wood was glamorous, kind of Bohemian and was never afraid to speak her mind. Your family will always be vaulted in my best memories ever. May your fond memories of your wife and mother warm your hearts at this sad time. Hopefully she's renewing old friendships with my parents and Rosemary. On behalf of the Oliver Family we extend to you our deepest sympathy. Love, Susan, Patty, Kathleen and John Tom Oliver
