    It is too bad that sending money is the only thing that many of us can do to help such a good lady like Betheny.
    My sentiments exactly. And she has been planning a move to NM for quite some time, and especially after this, I'm sure she will want to get the hell out out of Oklahoma, which appears to be cursed for her. And that money will help get her on her way to greener pastures, in addition to funeral expenses, whatever form that may take.

    Just by way of update, addiesue will be my independent verification for anyone who wants to be 100% sure that all the donations are legitimately sent as a cash donation (via check) directly to Betheny. Please contact her directly if you want information on that (after a few days when it all is settled and done).

    And thank you again for all of the hearty votes of confidence in me, I appreciate it very much. It makes me feel very good.

    I'll PM it to you so as to not reveal her last name publicly.

    Someone spoke to Betheny and she doesn't want flowers, but that the cash donation is very much appreciated for funeral expenses. I will send her a check tomorrow with everything I've gotten so far, and then another next week with anything that comes in from tomorrow onwards, so please continue sending donations. Thank you.

    Yes, Betheny was in disbelief and grateful for all of this!

    She wanted me to tell everyone thank you sooo much and will post when she can.
    This will help VERY much w/ funeral expenses.

    I thought she would feel that way about flowers ... it's good that we can help her with the funeral expenses at the very least. Thanks for the update you guys.

    I'm just so sorry that this is the only comfort that we can offer her.

    I would hope that people will go to the website that cass provided and light a candle for Betheny and Jake. It is a lovely way to say how much you care for her and wish her peace.
