Theola, I will miss talking to you on the phone and you always telling me that you loved me at the end of the conversation. You and Ben will always be remembered. I can still remember when we first came by to see your house to purchase and Ben would always say that he had build the house for you and for me. We are the ones that bought your mom's house in Odessa. May you both rest in peace.
