A Time to be born
Betty was born in Waynesboro, Georgia on September 18, 1056.
A Time to Live
Betty accepted Christ at an early age. Betty was a High School graduate and also attended some College too in Boston, Mass.
A Time to Mourn
Betty leaves to Cherish her memories; a loving daughter, Tarshia S. Sherman, a devoted son, Andrew L. Sherman, her mother Blossie Britt, four sisters, Ruthie, Henrietta, Patricia and Tracey. One brother Kelvin, two aunts, Lucille and RosaLee. Two nieces, three nephews and very special cousin James Owens. A host of other relatives and friends and too many to mention by name.
The family wishes to thank all friends and neighbors for kindness shown to us in every way during our times of bereavement. Thank you.
To My Mama
I’m you only daughter and oldest of the two. She always told me the truth like a real mother with her golden heart. You’re a great mom to me. Now half of my heart lives in heaven. I love you mama. From your daughter with love.
To My Children
I will always love ya’ll when you think of me don’t cry, think of the happy times we shared and smile and I’ll be there even though you can’t see me.
Love your mother Betty
To My Sister
From your sister Betty
Please don’t say that I gave up, just say that I gave in. Don’t say I lost the battle, for it was God’s battle to lose or win. Please don’t say how good I was, but that I did my best. Just say I tried to do what right to give the most I could, not do less. Please don’t give me wings or halos that’s for God to do. I want no more than I deserve no extras. Just my due. Please don’t give me flowers or talk in harsh tones. Don’t be concerned about me now. I’m well with God. I’ve made it home don’t talk about what could have been. It’s over and it’s done. Just see to all my family’s needs. The battle has been won when you draw a picture of me. Don’t draw me as a saint. I’ve done some good, I’ve done some bad. So use all your paint. Not just the bright and light tones, use some gray and dark. In fact don’t put me down on canvas, paint in your heart.
Don’t remember all the good time, but remember all the bad, for life is full of many things; some happy and some sad. But if you must do something then I have one request…Forgive me for the wrongs I’ve done and with the love that left thank God for my souls resting. Thank God for all who loved me. Praise God who loved me best.
