Letter: Rappahannock loses a friend

Rappahannock County had a real pal in the late Betty Webb for the better part of three decades. There were few persons anywhere with such a spirit of generosity.

If you were new to the Amissville neighborhood where Betty and her husband Gil lived, she wanted to make certain that you were welcomed; Betty sent out invitations, prepared the dinner, cleaned house, and gathered her friends to make sure you were received into the group.

Betty invited you to her church, but thought not a whit less of you if you declined.

Whenever you were in Betty’s company you felt better about yourself and the world.

Anyone who was privileged to know Betty was fortunate indeed.
