Please accept our sympathy at the loss of
your Dad, Bill. I was a little girl when he and
Margie got married and they lived next door
to us. I remember a cute little baby boy
being born and no doubt was rotten.
Mom wouldn't let me get near Billy so he
survived. I didn't know your Mom died.
I hope you have nothing but happiness,
joy and health.
Loved that little Billy,
