This is a heart-warming and equally heart-wrenching story. You told AND showed it extremely well.

I pray that I have the joy and the faith of Betty, now--and then.
Excellent! I'm glad you had a Betty at such a young age. So many don't and their whole lives are wasted, or they find Him so late in life it is now a question of what if? Anyway wonderfully told and a perfect example of evanglelism.
You write a wonderful story! Packed with emotions and making the reader right there with you. Good job! Only suggestion I have is to watch the 'hads' and 'was' words with tense.
Good ending too. I bet you have many more stories to share from your experience there.
This is a wonderful story of love and commitment. This emotional experience led you back to the Lord. You did it with such love and caring that it is not surprising that the Lord used it to bring you to Him again where you can find fulfillment in your other duties.
Very well written and quite moving.
