I have so many amazing memories of Betty Lou that I couldn’t possibly pick one that could top the other one. Emerald Isle camping trips, the mountains, Ocacroke,Washington,DC and simply the Ballard Road were we spent many a Saturday night. We rode to work together for a short period of time.There are so many memories that come to my mind,but I can promise you that I will never forget you as long as I live. I bet Timmy was the first one you saw when you passed the Golden Gates. Love Joan
