1951 was a magical year for Bob and Barbara Pettis - that was the year they said "I do" forever and "till death do us part." By the end of their lives, they were both Holdenville, Oklahoma school teachers, living and working in the community they loved.
"I don't believe in coincidences, and I didn't sit down and tell Dad that Mama was gone. But I'm sure he knew. They [Bob and Barbara] weren't all 'smoochy-woochy, touchy-wouchy,' but in their voices, and the way they looked at each other, you could see their love. Just in the little things."
