I was saddened to read of Betty's death. I haven't seen her in many years, but she was one of my dearest friends and mentors at New Life Bible Fellowship Church. She drove along with me to doctor appointments in Philadelphia for many months after my diagnosis of leukemia in 1986. We also enjoyed lunch and shopping at Doneckers back in the late 80's. She was gracious and kind and a great Christian woman. My condolences to the family. Brenda Angstadt

Benjamin Raker

thank you for paying your condolences Brenda, my daughter and I miss mom so much. With all the turmoil of the past few days, the first instinct I have is to call mom to talk, because that's what I would always do when I needed guidance, or just a shoulder to cry on. She would always listen, always care, always want to help. But of course that's the exact thing I can no longer do. I know she is happy now in heaven, without pain and sickness and sorrow; and I know I should be happy as well, but all I feel is sorrow. Ben and Lorena Raker
