      Dave & Roberta,

      Yes, it is very strange right now…no parents, no grandparents and no husband…I am a little lost right now BUT GOD…is so good to me and carry’s me. I lost track of you both after you moved away. Bob and I had just relocated back to Frankfort 3 years ago quite unexpectedly but it’s a God thing of course. You take care of yourselves. You were always such good neighbors to my folks and good friends. ~Shauna
