Dear Norma, I was so sorry to learn about Bill's passing away. Just last week in the Y pool we were wondering how you and he were both getting along. It doesn't seem very long ago that I would look up and see Bill heading for the ladder to get in the pool. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Sincerely, Jean Bryant
