Bob and Val were the surrogate parents I needed when I was 16-17 and growing up in the same church they went to in Tulsa, Ok. When I needed someone to show faith in me and value me for the way I was, that's exactly what they did. Their love, warmth and interest cheered me up in a way I will never forget. Their encouragement over Mazzio's pizza Sunday nights is one of the best memories I have of being a teenager. I remember all the good chats we had on Wednesday nights when the youth group hung out in the CLC. Jeremy was an adorable little boy in those days. Bob and Val saw I felt a little lost and needed to connect to someone, and that's what I did. I connected to them. I still cherish and honor that connection. Sending you much love Val and Jeremy. I can't believe he is gone.
