Dear Myrt and family,

Our condolences to you all since Bill passed away. I ( Margaret) was glad that I could come to the funeral. It was very nice. We have so many fond memories of Bill. I remember how he and I both enjoyed the Kentucky Derby and we would see if we could pick a winner and sometimes we did! I have always been a fan of Elvis Presley and Bill told me that he had met him when he was in the Army at Fort Hood. We can be comforted now in knowing that Bill is in heaven with Jesus and that we will be re-united with him again someday.
Lots of love, Buddy and Margaret Malone
