Mrs. Betty Ruth Owens

She was a marvel to meet, The simple fact that anyone could be so sweet. She gave of herself all the day through Stopped and shared her heart with those that were blue. Baking for the sick, shopping for a friend, The depth of this woman had no end. I marveled at her beauty, it was all the way through To the depth of her being, she was what's true! The Bible gives us what a woman should be, Betty Ruth Owens seemed as close as can be. From Her family with Love
