Mimi and I send our prayers and condolences to Betsy and her family on the passing of David. We were deeply saddened by his death. We have not known Betsy and David for a long time, but have enjoyed knowing them over the past few years at Shannondell. What a wonderful couple in all respects! While this will be a difficult time for Betsy and her family, in time they can take comfort in the fond memories that they shared.
