I’m so sorry for your guys loss. Uncle Bill will be greatly missed. I can still remember during our visit to Texas one year we went to a Cajun restaurant and he talked me into trying gumbo. I ate it then ended up with a major fever blister. RIP uncle Bill until we meet again. The last picture of both my great uncle’s love you both and enjoy paradise together
