  6. Carolyn Speight Creech

    Today I learned of my true friend’s death. We were friends from high school on. I was in her wedding and she was in mine. I was there when Blake and Morgan were born, and she was there when my granddaughters were born.
    We endured many years together during happy times and sad times. We celebrated many occasions with Jerry, Betty Jean , Kim, and my daughter, Sherry, and I am so sad she is gone. I will always remember her and how much I loved her.


    Kim, Steve, Blake and Morgan, our thoughts and prayers are with each of you as you grieve the loss of a wonderful lady. Betty Jean was a special friend to all who knew her. She was a very caring person and she gave so much love to everyone. We can rejoice that she is with Jerry now and that one day we will see her again. Sorry that we cannot be at the visitation but we will be thinking of you. Mary and Paul
