We are sorry to hear about your loss of Betty. She was a remarkable person and a loving mother. Betty was an important part of our life as cousins from our earliest years and later when we attended high school together, and kept in contact after we left the area. Betty Lou and her mother Ruth were direct descendants of the New England Adam''s family which gave us two U.S. Presidents. Ruth was the daughter of Alice Adams Shultz Strait Godding, known affectionately by the larger Shultz family as "Grandma Godding." and a dear friend of our mother, Alice Scott Shultz. Although my last visit with Betty was at the time of the 50th Bradford High School Reunion in 2006, we did keep in touch after that. I admired and respected Ruth and her children who, in spite of troubling experiences when they were very young have led remarkable and productive lives. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time of loss. The Courtney and Alice Scott Shultz Family
