We send our thoughts and prayers to the Valle-McElroy families. When we moved next door to Betty and Russ 22 years ago, we immediately felt a kinship with them, all of us having some New Jersey in our souls. What wonderful neighbors to have. Betty and Russ were always so kind to our children. I will always be grateful to both of them, and I especially remember Betty's sweet spirit today as we honor the life she led.
