I am so sorry that I didn't see the paper with your parents announcement. I would like to have been able to come to the visitation or funeral. I have often thought of them and the times we spent together when my parents and your parents were close friends and went dancing together in Moulton. I know this is a sad time and I wish I could have seen them one more time. It is hard to be without your parents and for both to go at the same time must really be hard. My parents have been gone for so long but it doesn't seem that long. I am thinking of you all and wish I could say something to make it easier but I know that is not possible. The best to all of you.

Just wanted to type a few words to express our deepest sympathies at this time. No one is ever prepared to lose a parent, never the less, both of them. Our advice to you is to remember all the wonderful times you had and know they both lived to be great ages. Most people now days dont live to see half that! Betty, you & Virgil are 2 of our closest friends. Please let us know if theres anything ya'll need. We love you both very much. Take care & remember all those great memories you made with them!
