We are sorry for the loss of Bob in this life for you, the family. We were his deacons for many years and visited with him and Betty at their home and in the Carlisle Hospital. They both were always so gracious. We have missed Betty and know Bob was suffering in many ways. Jim would report to us. Our hearts go out to you in your grief. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you.

Most Sincerely, Francine and Howard Moody
