Betty, We were so happy when you came into our father's life. You gave him a meaning to live and have you to share each day with. Wish we could of been of more help to you during the past 10 years. Living in different states makes it hard to spend time together. You were never far from our thoughts.
We know you are now at a well deserved rest.
Love you, Beverly & Bob
