Bobby (and family),

I send my heartfelt condolences for your loss. I have many fond memories of the early years we spent together and know that Betty made many lives brighter by her presence.

I've made Virginia my home for 37 years and don't get to Dothan as often as I'd like. You and Betty have always been in my thoughts no matter how far apart we are. Betty's loss is a reminder of how time flies and how often we fail to stay in contact.

Love always,
