Dear Betty , Steven and Eric. Some of the best memories of my life were spent with your family at your house on Northlake drive or in Jacksonville at the Georgia games, skiing in Boone or Skyvalley and all those summer days on the lake. Your father was always us and made us feel we were part of the family. My prayers go out to all you during this difficult time.
