So many wonderful memories of us bowling together in tournaments. Betty gave my son a whole collection of Desert Storm Cards which she saved for him. He was an infant and is now 29 and still has those cards. I visited often when I came home from the military on leave, she never skipped a beat, we would pick up right where we left off years before. I will miss her.
