I am so sorry to hear about Beth and Joe. Beth was one of my best friends in high school. We had so much fun, and as I'm sure Lila remembers I'd go over to Beths house on Friday nights before we'd go rollerskating to wait for Beth to get ready and I'd sit at the kitchen table and put on more makeup cause Beth had great makeup. She also taught me how to 2 step on rollerskates. We had so many great memories.
