Robert-I am so sorry that I did not know who you were when we were talking in the Arrowhead lobby. You will always be in my prayers. I will never forget your pat on my shoulder when I told you I had been a foster parent. I was a member of Emmas Grove Baptist Church and a choir member when I was younger. Blessings and peace, Betty Nelon Rhodes
We had many happy memories of working together at work and home. You were a beloved friend.
