Betty McQuaid was the best neighbor. Our children called her "The Vegetable Fairy" as Betty often left veggies and fruit on our doorstep and we never saw her do it. As our children grew, "The Vegetable Fairy" got more playful by adding our son's plastic garden snake to the veggie gifts or planting garlic in our garden when we weren't home. She had the best strawberries and gave them to us hulled and clean, ready to eat. It was a joy to allow her to have as many of our apples and pears as she wanted each year. We loved being able to give back to her in this way. Two of our children's baby teeth were lost at Betty's while eating an apple in her dining room. She was so useful in raising our new family with phone calls "you left your car door open" or telling us how our dog did while we were away camping. Betty always remembered our family at Christmas and we enjoyed decorating her porch with balloons for her birthday. Adam enjoyed his long visits with Betty as he sat with her for hours. After she moved, we loved sending her homemade cards and pictures that she hung on her door. If someone said they knew our family (from a concert with The Devine Inspirations) Betty would tell them how SHE KNEW The Devine Inspirations. We couldn't have asked for a better neighbor and have greatly missed seeing her. We will continue to pray for all of her loved ones. May God give you the peace that you ask for in Jesus' name. - Rebecca, Adam, Bellina, Cole, and Lillian Devine
