    Our condolences to Elaine, Shannon/Dave, Lana/Rob. I know you will all miss Bill teribly as we all will. He was the only one we enjoyed having over for a meal, as he enjoyed whatever the food consisted of. Made me feel I knew how to cook. WE will miss our long chats and listening to him sing and play his music. Also all the lovely flowers in the yard. Our favorite brother-in-law and friend…..
