Dear Dorothy , I know he it has been many years since we spoke or saw one another but I will never forget how special you and Bob were to my Mom and Dad Dale and Ruby Latch. It is hard to believe they both have been gone for 30 yrs. I do have the memory of how much they loved you and Bob. I found pics of all of you the other day at one of your bank parties. How I miss them. I lost my husband last year as well so I do know how you feel Dorothy with God's love I am very blessed even though my Gary is gone. I would like to share a short quote that helps me thru every day. I was supposed to spend the rest of my life with you. And then I realized you spent the rest of your life with me. I smile because I know you loved me till the day you went away and will keep loving me... Till the day were together again. Take Care old friend, Vicky (Latch) Eley
