I am so very sorry to hear about Betty Ray. I did not know she had passed until this morning, 2 days after the service & I am so sad I didn’t get to give my condolences in person. Betty Ray gave me my career by hiring me in 1995. She was an amazing person & she molded me & taught me not only by her encouraging words but mostly by her kind, yet strong actions! She was a great boss, supporter & just such a lovely woman. I’m not sure words can describe the amount of love & admiration I had for her. I am who I am much in part due to her. I work everyday to honor her & Mrs Nall’s legacy at the Big Spring Health Food Store. No other family could’ve done what they did & I was fortunate to walk behind them & follow that path.

My mother was my Sunday School Teacher before I was blessed to have her as a mother. I still remember her telling the story of Jesus calming the stormy sea and how she dramatically made the sounds of the wind and waves to enthusiastically bring the story to life. I also remember her taking me to many plays in downtown Big Spring. On one occasion after falling asleep, she leaned over and whispered to me asking if I could see the flowers dancing. Something in the music was allowing her to see it and she wanted to know if I could too. I can’t remember the name of the play, just the excitement that she shared that afternoon and throughout my years with her. She liked to cook and every Sunday she would put together a big family meal and used every pot in the kitchen. I remember that because we had to wash all those pots and dishes every week! As these remembrances show, family was always important to mother, and she was a great influence on my life and my faith in Jesus. For my family, Steve, Jake, Lenise, Whitney, Sam and Max, we give thanks to God that He allowed us to share time with her in this world. We’ll miss hearing her kind voice and encouraging words, but we rejoice at the blessing we received and with the assurance that she is now at home with our Lord! We love you mother!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

My Aunt Betty Ray was one of a kind. She always knew how to slip her niece a Hershey bar. She was fun, drove like crazy and made visits to Big Spring something to look forward to. She will be missed! We love you Betty Ray, Nancy and family.

I will miss visiting and talking with Betty Ray about how we would improve every facet of the world. Our solutions were never adopted to our dismay but we never expected them to be anyway. I miss you Betty Ray. Love, Paul

Although I did not know Betty Ray Coffee, I am very sorry for Brent's loss of the mother he dearly loved. From reading about Betty it is obvious she was quite a pistol. Brent most definitely got his wit and sense of humor from his amazing Mom. What an incredible woman she must have been. I smiled and laughed just while reading about her life. She sure raised a good man in her son "Brent." My sincere sympathy to Brent, all of Betty Ray's family and all of her friends and who will miss her dearly. Sending love and prayers for all of you. What a Blessing that Betty Ray can be with her Mom again in Heaven. I also love seeing all of the beautiful pictures of Betty Ray that Brent has shared with me. Nancy Gail Neeley (I work with Brent Clifton).

My Aunt Betty Ray was a true favorite. She loved her family and was a special person to many. Her younger sister, Lou Ann Nall Baker (my mother) loved her very much. We are so thankful for all the love she shared with us.

Max and family. I am so sorry for your loss. Betty was an amazing, kind lady. I have known her for many years. She and my mother, Bertha Hamill, worked at the VA for many years. I cherish they were friends as well. We lived on the same street as Betty and Max for years and also knew them from golf outings. She will be missed.

My sincere and deepest condolence to the family. You all are in my thoughts and prayers. It was a pleasure to have had the opportunity to work (care) for Mrs. Betty. I admire and was fascinated to hear about all of her stories growing up. She was indeed a very smart, kind hearted, sweet and funny lady. She will be truly and greatly missed. May her beautiful soul RIP.
