Don’t cry for me, for I have no fear. All my pain is gone, and God took my tears. Don’t cry for me, I am not alone. The angels are with me to welcome me home. Don’t cry for me, I will be okay. Heaven is my home now and this is where I’ll stay. Betty Lue Smith Bickers, 92, of Covington, KY, passed away on Saturday, January 15, 2022, at St. Elizabeth Hospital, Edgewood.
