I am so sorry about your mother. She was a very sweet lady I have not seen her in years but she knew my mom and dad. I went to school with bobby. My dad cut all the men's hair I believe. My mom passed away Oct 3 2000 but I got to cherish my dad till March 2017. My thoughts are with all of you. Hugs penny Wallace Merritt. my email is [email protected]

John and Bobby,
I did your Moms hair for many, many years. We both worked downtown and it was convenient for her. She was such a pleasant person to be around. I always enjoyed our time together. She was one of my favorite clients. Prayers for you both and your families.

We will miss Betty! She was soft spoken and had a gentle personality. She was a wonderful Christian lady. I enjoyed working with her at UT, but I got to know her even better when we joined Arlington Baptist. We enjoyed retiree lunches with great times of fellowship. I will always remember her sweet spirit and beautiful smile. We love you, Betty Pat, Mickey, and Darren Pittman

I loved being around Big John & working the bus ministry on his bus and I always loved being around Betty. She always had the sweetest smile. Even though she’s rejoicing now she’ll be dearly missed.
With our Prayers, Sharon Floyd Taylor & John
