    Betty was the reason I kept coming back to Ingham Medical Care Facility. She called me her “Gal Friday.” Little does she know how much she touched my heart. I miss her already. She can “dance the dance” with Herb to George Strait all she wants now. God Bless you Betty and her family she so dearly loved. My thoughts are with you. S
