I am so sorry to hear of Bobbye's passing and to learn that Lowell had preceeded her. I grew up next door to her parents on N. View Terrace and remember Bobbye and Lowell's wedding reception in the back yard. My parents, Liz & Mac McCrea were good Alexandria friends and visited them in VA Beach.

I lost both Mother & Papa within the past 7 months and emphathize with your loss.
