"ALL day and ALL night ANGELS are watching over the White and Holley Families"
"Your tears are just temporary relief.
Your tears are just a release of the pain, sorrow, grief.
Your tears are expressions that can't controlled.
A little crying out is alright,
but after awhile you won't have to cry no more;
don't you worry, God's gonna wipe every tear away..."
During the afternoon hours on Wednesday the twenty-seventh day of July in the year of twenty-twenty two the White and Holley Family set bedside and watched Mother Betty White Holley transition from her earthly bed and receive her new address in Heaven.
Betty was the daughter of the late Booker and Anna Overton White. She was preceded in death by her sister Beatrice Collins. In 1969, she married the late Elbert A. Holley.
