Among the Thunder faithful who packed "The Peake" for Friday night's game against New Orleans was an 86-year old Altus woman. 

Betty Dollins had never been to a Thunder game before. Last month Betty's husband of 66 years Homer passed away. Betty's family thought Friday night was a good night to finally get Betty to a game. 

"He's probably watching from above," Betty said before the game. "If I had to crawl down here today I would have come." 

Betty's niece Jan Chaney and daughter Donna McCoy accompanied her to the game. "She's been doing for us for years," McCoy said. "And it's time for us to do some fun things for her."
