I would like to offer my condolences to the Graves family. I had the opportunity when my mother was in the nursing home to run into betty in the activities room. She was a very nice person, who was proud I am sure of her two sons(Bob and Jim's dedication to her throughout her time there. It also gave me some time to know her a little better and know that she is in a much better place now. Thanks Jim for coming in and visiting with my mom as well, she really liked that alot, and it was good to see you again. God Bless Connie Curtis
