Dear Debbie, Jeanie and Bill,
So sorry to hear of your Father's death. I had hoped to visit you last Thursday, but was out of town. I am an old neighbor from your days on Mulberry Street. Debbie babysit for me. I am Nancy McCrady. Neil and I lived across the street at 532 E. Mulberry. Remember? I used to see Jeanie at Lancaster Sales regularly, and Bill at St. Bernadette Church.
I hope you are all doing well. I am considering my age. Same as your Dads.

While Bill was my cousin, he was actually more like an uncle to me ever since I was small. Even as a little kid, he would ask you questions about what you were doing in school or summer activities, and he wanted to know every detail. When you spent time with him, he made you feel like the most important person in the room! A great listener *and* a great conversationalist. Always had a good story… and another one all ready to follow it up with! Such a generous guy… I remember he and Marge bringing me back a 3-D replica of the Magic Kingdom when they went to Disney World, and that great salt water taffy he made sure to get for me when they went to the Boardwalk.
When I grew up and eventually attended Ohio State, he would check on me by phone to make sure I was doing OK and asking if I needed anything. “Just let me know, I know how to get there” he’d say. On one of those phone calls, I offered him a ticket to sit with me an upcoming Ohio State Football game. I don’t how many games Bill ever went to, maybe lots, but he looked like the happiest guy in the world that day as he sat in the ‘Shoe.
Big screen TV’s, CB radios… and a pet groundhog. That was Bill, and he will be missed.
