Hey Nancy, we moved back to Newport News last year andI didn't keep up with Obits. I always thought your mother was one of the most beautiful women I'd ever met, but I thought you you were even more beautiful than your mom and sister. I hope you're doing well and are happy. We used to have so much fun together and laugh our heads off together. I still think about you all the time and Ihope you read this and give me a call - my cell number is still the same!

My condolences to all the family on their loss of Webber. As our next door neighbor for the first 15 years of my life, she was like a second Mom. Such a sweet, kind woman. She and Bill were a great couple. They will both be greatly missed, but so happy they are reunited!

So sorry to hear about Mrs. Casey passing. She was always so nice to us kids playing around the house, although I don't think she liked us throwing for THE LINE on her beautiful hard wood floors:)

Webber and Bibby with new kitten, Pete
Webber and Bibby were our beloved neighbors for 35 years. They were a wonderful couple and visits with them were delightful. We enjoyed knowing their children and grandchildren. May they RIP together.

I attended Hilton Elementary School with Melinda a long time ago.
