We share your grief, but more importantly your hope. There is pain with the loss of each loved one, and each time it is unique, never the same. The day will come when he “will call,” the dead will answer, and our grief will be replaced with joy, multiplied by factors of thousands. Let’s endure until that day finally comes.

My condolences to the Chew family on the loss of sister Betty Chew. She was a beautiful loving sister. I loved being around her and her family. She always had a sweet smile on her face and she looked so nice in her beautiful hats. She was always so nice to talk to and so very encouraging and I will miss my dear sister and I await the time when we will be together in the new world that Jehovah has promised❤️

To a loving family Jehovah and his holy spirit will be with you. When I think of Betty Chew I think of fashion and class and a spiritual person. I have known her since Browns Ave. To the day I last saw her she was the same amazing woman.
