Aunt Lally, I'm thinking of you, Janet & Family, and Roy & Family at this time. Uncle Bill was one of my favorites and I fondly remember him telling us to call him "Just Plain Bill", not Uncle Bill! My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time.

Aunt Lally, Jan, Don, Roy, Cindy, and Families,
You have my deepest sympathy. Thinking of you all and recalling many fun memories of Uncle Bill...Just Plain Bill! Sad to lose another of that great group of Barr Aunts and Uncles, but what a wonderful, long life. He never said goodbye, just so long.
