    Please accept my sincere condolences for your family’s loss. Betty became a dear friend while we worked together in IBT/Ameritech’s forecasting department. It was my good fortune to learn how to do my job with Betty’s guidance. Her cheerful good nature, genuine concern for others, humor and thoughtfulness endeared her to all who knew her. She was this White Sox fan’s favorite Cubs fan.
