Diane -- We are sorry to learn of your loss. We have been in the Atlanta area for about a month. Leyman dropped by your house one day in hopes of visiting with you and Bill. He was disappointed that noone was home. (Leyman is at St. Joseph's recovering from double bypass surgery.) We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.
