I have so many memories. The few that I think about often is Ralph and Betty coming to our house for Sunday dinners and then us going fishing in the pond. Another one is how Ralph and Wally always had to have 3 and 4 bowls of soup on Christmas Eve so it took longer to get the dishes done before we could open presents. But the one that I am most proud of is Ralph telling me that he loved me. It started about 3 years ago. Now I had to tell him that I loved him 3 and sometimes 4 times first, BUT with a twinkle in his eye, he would say I love you back to me. That makes me smile every time I think about it. Betty, remember that I love you and I really am just a phone call away!! Hugs and kisses :)
