Betty was a great friend, teacher, and supporter. I took lessons from her when I was in 8th grade. I wanted to learn current hits of the day, but she wanted to teach traditional songs. At the end of the year she told me if I wasn't going to practice the lessons she gave me, I was wasting her time and my parents money. That was Betty. Always direct. I never took any more lessons (to my regret today), but she had taught me the fundementals and I muddled on from there. We remained great friends and kept in touch over the years. She always took great pride in her students and and even came to see me perform on several occassions. Every year I got a Christmas card from her and I would stop in to see her occassionally when I visited London. Such a kind, caring, thoughtful person who truly embodied the word "teacher". I will miss her greatly. Regretfully, I could not make it to pay my respect to my friend and teacher. RIP Betty. Your legacy lives on in all those you taught to love and play guitar, especially me.
