Hey Bob;
I'm sure sorry to hear about Mrs. Betty's passing.I pray that the Lord will help you during this time of separation. I thank you for all your support while I worked in Madison. You both were so helpful to me in the elections in Morgan County. If there is anything I can do, please feel free to call me. I'm sorry I was unable to attend the funeral.
