To the family  and friends  of Beatty  Jane I would  just like to say how sorry I am to hear about her passing. She was the best neighbor  a person could ask for. Many times would I go by on my way home from work and she would be out laying on the ground with her (toy) John  Deere on ramps scraping  the deck! I only asked if she needed help 1 time because  she truly  loved doing it herself and being independent. She didn't  want my help. I wish I could attend  the services but I will be on a cruise. Sorry for not being  able to come.
