My deepest condolences to Marge & all the family. I have many memories of our bridge days, Bill was a sweet loveable old guy., We had a standing joke, every Fri. morning at VSO bridge, I’d hug him & ask him if he was grumpy today? When he laughed & said, Yes, then I said, Then you are OK. We’ll miss you. Rest in Peace.
