Betsy was a prosecutor in Mecklenburg Juvenile Court when I served as a District Court Judge. She was a capable trial lawyer and always very professional. Betsy was a role model for other prosecutors. God bless her family during this sad time. I am thankful to have known her.
Thank you John for that lovely tribute to Betsy....Kent and I are so sorry for your loss.... I was her hairstylist and friend for nearly 18 yrs...and I loved her very much.... I enjoyed our “appointments and visits”... I will miss her dearly... hugs and prayers ❤️
Thank you for allowing us to gain some insight into such a beloved woman. The tribute was beautiful, and captured her essence. You have my prayers for strength and comfort during this devastating time for you and your family. God's peace be with you.
I’m so sorry for your loss. What a beautiful tribute for such a fun-loving, strong woman....this really captures her sense of humor along with all of her accomplishments. Thank you for sharing her story. She will be missed by many!
John, through Amy's Facebook post, we read about Betsy's death and were shocked to hear of your great loss. I never met her, even though I've known you since birth, but I know how important she was in your life and how much you are grieving now. Your thirty years together on earth may be over, but eternity is forever and we pray that we all will meet again there. Love and hugs from both Melanie and me.
Thanks for sharing Betsy’s life story with is! I love that Betsy was the Queen of the Beat Dook parade. Now that’s a true Tar Heel!! I recall meeting Betsy in Greenville for the first time, and you told Ed Harrison and me that you were in love. I will pray for you during this time of grief and know that you will recall and cherish the time you had with Betsy. I look forward to gathering with you and friends in the coming weeks to celebrate her life with you.
What a great and well deserved tribute! Betsy was one of the kindest people I've ever known. She will be sorely missed. My love and sympathy.
What a beautiful tribute to Betsy. We were so saddened to hear of her passing. Our hearts, love and thoughts are with you, Liz and the entire family.
I pray that you feel God’s comfort as you go through this difficult, sad time. There will never be anything sadder than missing your life partner and lover. What a beautiful tribute. I will always remember what you have meant to my family! Never say you “lost” Betsy. Nothing is lost when you know where they are! Please try to grieve as a believer and let the good memories cheer you each day. What a full life for a great lady to have lived! A great big ole hug for you, John Bare!❤️🙏❤️
Such a beautiful tribute John. I loved the story about visiting open houses and the seance. She was obviously an accomplished, complex, thoughtful woman. I’m so sorry you lost her.
To all of Betsy's loved ones - Your outpouring of support has been more valuable than I can explain. The darkness and pain of losing Betsy is offset by the joy and memories of 30 years with her. I am the luckiest man on the world to have found such a loving, inspiring partner. Thank you for your prayers and good wishes and for sharing your stories about Betsy. I know she would want all of you to focus on your own health and well-being during this pandemic. In a few months, when it is safe to gather and hug, we will organize a memorial service and celebration of Betsy's life - featuring all of the music and food she loved. John Bare
