I had the opportunity growing up in community that was small, people were close and got to know each other.  Bob and Betty were both very good people, easy to talk to and made you feel welcome when you were around them.  I appreciated knowing them along with their fine children.

Bless all of you.

I'm so very sorry for your loss. I know the feeling of losing a parent, but at least you know that there is no more pain or suffering for Betty. I can remember being at the house in Prospect several times as a kid. Also remember going camping at Indian Lake! So many good memories! Your family is in my prayers!

My sympathy to you as you mourn the loss of your mother. She was a fine lady and kept a wonderful home for you to grow in. Cheryl was fond of her and always felt welcome in her home. My thoughts are with you.
