    I remember Betsey as an attractive, super-smart woman who could very easily converse about emotional issues. We both lived in Atlanta, GA at the same time, and ran into each other once or twice. I'm sure she was a great clinical psychologist and I'm sad to think she can't be with us here at the 40th reunion.
