My husband Phillip and I rented from Charles and Pamela while Phil was going to PA school at Alderson Broaddus. They were the sweetest couple. And the best landlords. We could have talked with them for hours. Today Phil and I have been married 11 years We were newly wed when we rented from Charles. They were like our grandparents there. Those two years renting on their gorgeous land were some of the best memories of our marraige. We love you and miss you Charles and Pamela. Hope all is well Pamela. We think of you often
