Many years ago I worked for Grenada Bank and got to know Betty. Her husband was a relative of one of my high school classmates and as we talked, we became friends. I remember when her first child was born. She was a tiny lady with a big personality. I have not seen her in many years and am sorry to learn of her passing. Condolences to all the family. Bobbie Murray Ridgeland, Ms.
