    Loree, I am so sorry that you must live without Bill. I know that you two loved each other so very much. I have many memories of going to visit Aunt Sarah and seeing Bill and Betty Lee. Bill was a lot older than the rest of us but back in those days, I only knew him as Bookie. That was what everybody called him. Well! After being gone from the area for many years, I ran into him at a visitation for I think Aunt Florence. I called him Bookie and boy did he give me a look that would kill. Sally whispered to me that he didn't like being called that any more. I apologized and all was well. He was back to making jokes and asking me if my husband was catching any bass. Bill loved to fish!
