Oh, Bill:  I am in a little bit of a state of shock, as are your children.  I think Shirley understands pretty well.  You worked so hard to care for her; you just didn't take care of yourself.  The kids are going to do a good job, seeing to their mom's care.  You and Shirley were great parents.  I applaud you both.

I called your house last night to get your home address;  since you had not responded to 2 e-mails;  Lucie answered the phone and thought I already knew.  Then she told me the story of how things had gone.  I know this sounds like I am talking to you; and I am.  For fifty-seven years we have been friends; and I am missing your sometimes annoying e-mails.

Your good buds are missing you fiercely ; but we will all see you again, in God's Time.

For grins:  you were a good dancer.  Some of us got into trouble on occassion.  Usually it wasn't you.

We had lots of fun.  Thanks for the memories Bill.  Now you can return to Master Gardening, with the Best of them all, Darby.
