I had a few classes with Betsi during our 3 years in high school.  Betsy was the first friend I knew that got contact lenses our sophomore year, I believe.  I remember going home and having the discussion of contacts because "everyone wears them"  I quickly changed my mind when I saw Betsi's eyes just watering all the time.  Her poor eyes!  I asked her everyday why her eyes watered so.  She told me she had to use eye drops several times a day to keep her eye moist.  She said she was not going to give up, because apparently she and her mom had quite a discussion because they were expensive.  She said her mom had FINALLY given in. Betsy was not going to lose the battle.  After she got used to them , we laughed about it.  But she still pulled out her glasses when the Vegas sand storms blew.  She was a fun person, quiet until you got to know her.  Rest in peace, friend.
