    Renae and her mom and dad were and are very special to me. I moved to Florida in 2004 and Renae followed me. Renae also loves all my family including my deceased mother. God bless all the family. You are in my heart and prayers.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. Thinking especially of Don, Dyana, Xavier and Chandler. I know how much you loved her and I am so glad I was able to meet this sweet lady.
  4. Anne Tomlinson says:
    In Aug. 1968 I was hired at TRW and sent to the payroll department. I worked for years with Betty. She was the best lady a person could have ever worked with. We never had a cross word. She was always kind to me and I will never forget that. Betty and I had some wonderful conversations in the last few years. I am so happy I was able to tell her how special she was and will always be to me. Love, prayers and deepest sympathy are with Billy and Betty’s loving family during this difficult time.
  5. Betty Haney Dowdy says:
    I worked with Betty for so many, many years at TRW, she was a wonderful friend to me and many others. She had a heart of gold and was always so positive, she loved every minute of life and was such a fighter. She adored her family and always was there for her family and for so many others. She will certainly be missed by all who knew her.
  6. Billy & Jan Ferrell says:
    Billy, We are so sorry for your loss. Betty was such a sweet lady and very good friend to us both. We will truly miss that sweet smile that was always on her face, no matter what. I am sure everyone here at Deer Park will miss her as much as we will. Please let us know if you need any thing at all. Billy & Jan Ferrell
