Mary Jane and the entire Boone family. I was lucky enough to be able to
visit Bill and Kathleen back in Indiana with my good friend Mary Jane. Bill
was a super guy and loved the time I spend with him and his family. It was
like stepping back in time when I visited the MJ always called it.
He lived a great life and had so many thoughts and prayers
are with you all. Rich and Donna Murray
