I am so saddened to hear of Betty Stanford’s passing. I called her “Stafford” and worked with her for 10 years at Capstone. I loved her, a kind hearted, fun loving, generous and compassionate person. I learned a lot from Stafford and though I have not seen her in years, I have thought of her often. My deepest condolences to Roger and all of her family.
