    Bettie was a sister I loved and adores who would never really accept me nor my mother Nevada Francis Duncan Pittam who married her father , my dad and raised his family having a son Wm. E. Billy Toney and three other’s I being the eldest. Now as of August 2, 2023, Only Gracie and I are still surviving.
    Betty as I always knew you, If God in Heaven allows it, I pray that he let’s you know I always loved you as my older sister. Life was not my fault. and my mother loved you as her own, no matter the circumstances. I feel this needed to be said before I to die very soon from now.
