Dick and family, I was saddened to read of the passing of Betty. Just the mention of the George family brought back great memories from the past and all the bowling we did together at Hillcrest bowl. May you find peace in our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, and may His strength be there during this difficult time. Gary Tollefson, Tony Tollefson’s son.

Our hearts are heavy after reading that Betty had passed away. Dick, you and Betty were like a second family to all of us, what fond memories we have of our 15+ years as neighbors.

So glad we ran into you at Perkins in January so we could catch up.

Big Hugs,

Swede, Diane, Walker & Cole
