In Loving Memory

Betty Harden 
7-9-26 to 5-25-13


It amazes me the people that God has placed in my life.  I didn't know Mrs. Betty the way others did, but I know and love her daughter. I do know that Betty loved the Jewish people and was in love with Jesus.  Her husband, Paul, and her have left a legacy to anyone associated with them.  I had the honor of helping Heidi, her daughter and my very best friend, take care of Mrs. Betty for about 6 months.  My children and I went over there almost everyday.  She had such a gentle and fun spirit.  She even helped us realize that William has a passion for the elderly.  He flocks to them.  Watching him with my neighbor and with total strangers at the nursing home, is precious. 

At the funeral today, the spirit there was of fun and play, not sadness.  We know that she is in heaven praising her Jesus and standing with her husband again.  I was nervous allowing the children to get attached to her, but it has been a beautiful site.  My mom always said, "It is better to have loved, than to never have loved at all." We love you Mrs. Betty.  Thank you for sharing your heart to all those around you. Your legacy will be in our hearts until we meet again.
