    • Dear Betty,I have always admired you – your beauty and elegance, your charmand wit, your intelligence and highly-informed conversation. Youhave been a role model for me in so many ways. I have tried toemulate your fashion sense, your organization, your seamstress’ skills,your creativity, and your fine cooking.Once, when I was a teenager, I said that my mom had told me youused to play Blue Moon on the piano. You scoffed. You said, “Oh thatwas long ago. I don’t remember it now.” But you have always met achallenge with determination and style. A little later that afternoon,you called me upstairs to the living room. Without a word, you satdown at the piano, and played, and sang, Blue Moon, with perfection.Thank you. And Happy Birthday to you. We will see you soon.Love, Ann

    • “Betty is a treasured member here. She is wise and shares herwisdom judiciously, with a rare combination of utter franknessand genuine respect. She is unfailingly constructive in timesof conflict, and delightfully engaged in times of celebrationand fun. She recently told me that her favorite day in ourchurch life is worship on Thanksgiving Sunday, which is akind benign pandemonium involving children, canned goods,cash offerings, and music resulting in a huge offeringannually for St. Martin de Porres womens and childrensshelter. Her concern for issues of social justice issophisticated, more nuanced and more deeply committed thanmany of her peers.”Rev. Susan JohnsonHyde Park Union Church
