    Dear Pat and family, I’m so sorry to hear of Bill’s death. Life takes us all in different directions, and my best memories are old ones when you first married and the children began to arrive, that little house on south 6th street. I always thought you two were a fabulous couple and there was always laughter. God bless you all today and always! Love, Becky
