    Gene, Brenda, and family,
    So sorry to hear of Betty’s passing. I have many fond memories of our time in the old Merwald neighborhood. It was nice to see and catch up with you and Betty at the outpatient PT clinic when Vickie and I bumped into you all there. My condolences to your entire family. Bill
