Our thoughts and prayers go out to Bob and the family. Betty and Bob you are very special in our hearts. As you called us your adopted kids that you couldn't claim on taxes. You both are wonderful parents to your own kids. So sorry we can't be with you at this time, but our thoughts and prayers and memories of Betty are still embedded in our hears. I always will remember when we first moved into our house where you and Betty worked on a few of our doors to make them look better. The times we worked out together at the South Charleston Rec centers, the special coffee times Juanita had with the group will always be a big part in our hearts.
