To the Walker family:
Your Mom was such a sweet Christian lady, and we were honored to know her and your Dad for many years. Our parents were friends for many years, from the days at NARF to Kempsville Baptist Church. In fact, your parent's final resting place is a very short distance from Arthur and Mattie Cardillo's place there at Rosewood. I know they are having a wonderful reunion together right at this moment.
In the spring of 2013 Sharon and I had the pleasure of visiting your folks at their home, and it was such a special visit. We have some wonderful pictures and memories of that day with them, and are so thankful we had the chance to see them while we were in Florida.
