Responses to Betty's
Betty is such an inspiration
that she takes away the fear of growing old. She's living proof that
life doesn't have to end after losing a partner. She's doing what she
loves to do and what she does
best: writing and sharing her experience with others. Thank you, Betty!

Betty's talk connected with

will convey to others what they too can do to find a new way of life.

Merci beaucoup, Betty. Thank
you for a splendid talk yesterday! I loved every moment of it. There
are more ladies I wish I had been able to bring yesterday, so I'll watch
for another time when we can catch you in this area. I'm sure the word
will get around about what an inspiration you are.

I really enjoyed Betty's
program. She certainly has come out of widowhood a happy and complete
person. There's hope. I think I should join a gym. It took me down and
raised me up all within forty minutes.
