I have to say that there are God sent blessings in each of our lives . Betty and John were that to me. They rented their townhouse to me for 9 years and they lived next door. It felt like living next to family. I remember Betty driving to Austin every week but she always came into town on the weekends for the grandkids. I am sadden they both are no longer here with us but they will always be in our memories. Linda and Stan Davis
