    Betty was a genuine human being. I know she was the rock of the Dobson clan but I can’t begin to comprehend how significant her loss will be to Steve and the family.
    I share in your grief.

  16. Judy Jones says:

    Dear Betty,
    I met you as a jealous 12 year old, afraid you would take my adored big brother away from me. You were such a shock to us all, so different…loud, energetic, down to earth and it took us a while to get to know you.
    Instead of losing my brother, I gained a big sister with a heart of gold, and in time a loving, caring Aunt for my two girls, Bonnie and Marion.
    Your patience and affection for your parent-in-laws may have seemed at times unappreciated but we could not have coped without you.
    Your time on this earth has been all too short, you will be missed so much by all of us
    Rest in Peace
    Love from Judy, Bonnie and Marion xxx
