I loved Bill and Brenda dearly. From time to time, I would visit with Bill after church, while he was waiting for Brenda to bring the car around. I don't remember how the subject came up. But I do remember how Bill's face lit up when he confirmed he had, "three kids and three grandsons! " I know he loved his family as much as loved God.

Bill and I would stop on the way to his dialysis appointment a few times and have coffee and talk about the good old days when we where in the Army and how things didn't always go the way they where supposed to. I remember we almost had it figured out BUT you know the Army is the Army.....
