Oh, Carol, I was so shocked to hear Bro. Bill passed away. Heaven now has a great man, but I know you and your family will miss him so much. I fondly remember our years at Lone Wolf. Also, our trip to Rye, Co. A trip that was so memorable as we dealt with our empty nest. Another good friend has gone on to heaven.
