Betty was my Dad’s (Ray Sivley) Executive Assistant for 10+ years at HL&P and she was like family to my Mom, brother and me. She always had a smile on her face and was ready to handle whatever came her way! She was a wonderful friend and we were lucky to know her. I’m sorry I cannot attend her service to personally extend warmest regards from my family to all of you. With sympathy, Sue Reed
