I first met Betty and her husband, Richard, on my first trip across the Atlantic from the UK in 1984 when I was lecturing at computer summer camps. From that point on we became very good friends. She taught me a lot about genealogy, and showed me and my mother Texas and New Orleans. I’ll always be grateful for what she taught me, and for her introducing me to Texas and her family. From the beginning I have always felt part of the family, and I was privileged to be invited to her grandson’s wedding just over 2 years ago – the last time I saw her.
