I've known Betty Kehoe for maybe 20 years as a mortgage lender and a friend. When I was a realtor she was my mortgage lender of choice whenever possible, and then after I left real estate and became a mortgage lender she ended up working at National City Mortgage with me for quite a number of years. She had worked as a branch manager at Bank of America until she retired from there. After a couple of years she decided to return to mortgage lending for a time, but has now retired again and lives at a beautiful home on the water at Smith Mountain Lake with her husband David. Nancy and I spent two wonderful days with them at their home.

We arrived at their home at about 3:00 in the afternoon, and were soon on the lake in their pontoon boat getting a guided tour of the lake, and drinking a few cool ones along the way. The weather was great and and we had a great time on the water with two very special friends.

Later on we had one of Betty's special dinners and just hung around for a while before crashing for the night. All of the activity was beginning to catch up with me and I had to crash early to try to catch up on the sleep that I'd been missing.
