    To all of Betty’s family,

    Betty was my across the street neighbor for 15 years. She was a lovely person and we will always think of her fondly. All the waves and the chit chats that could easily turn into an hour long out on her stoop. She always remembered names and details from previous conversations no matter how long it had been. May she rest in eternal peace in His arms.

    From across the street,
    The Barreto Family
    Hildemar, Violeta, Isabella, Vanessa and Leo.

    I was honored to know and care for Betty for maybe 20 or 30 years as her family physician before I retired in 2020.
    I always loved when she came in! She lit up my day even when she was dealing with sorrow, injury, or illness. What a wonderful lady!!
