Best wishes from the Dr. James F. White, Jr. family. Dad used to speak fondly of the times he and Ma shared with Dr. Bill and Miss Betty during their days at UVa Medical School. We're smiling as we think of all the fun times we shared with y'all at the Medical School reunions. Keep the good memories alive!! God Bless. Mary, Jean, Jim, and Alex White.

Of the many "moms" I had while growing up in Winchester, Mrs. Hancock had to have been the sweetest. Her welcoming smile could brighten my day. I will miss her. My love to Corby, Kym and both Bills.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Dear Bill and Family, What fond memories I always carry with me. Betty and I worked together countless hours starting in 1976 with the opening of the Hospital Gift Shop and continuing for the next eleven years. Almost every Monday through Friday would find us working on our chores as buyers for the gift shop. She would run home for lunch with Bill and soon be back for the afternoon. I would leave about 2:30 to be home by the time the school bus brought my four boys home. Besides being in the gift shop we had so much fun going on buying trips or meeting with vendors. We both loved volunteering for the hospital. Happy days...I'll cherish them always. Love and Prayers, Rhoda W Kriz

Bett was such a kind and loving person. I had the pleasure to spend some time with her last summer at the beach and it was great. She will surely be missed by all who knew her. Sonjia Cross
