Sorry to learn of Bill's passing. I think the last time I saw him was when he came hunting with Mearl, Raymond, Uncle Jim when we lived near Lone Tree.

My thoughts and prayers are with your family. He and your mom were wonderful neighbors to us on Lake Park and I truly enjoyed my visits with your dad.
