Happy days are really here. My daughter invited my grand-daughter, husband, and son to come live with us, and they have been here several days now. The great-grandson is a little over six months now. I just how

I may live long enough that
he may remember me. I have a theory that you're never really dead so long as someone remembers you with love.
Thanks for your kind words, Love, Bill


My friend Bill Hunt wrote me this in 2002 - WWH as he was known here. It's his birthday today. I still remember him with love.

Aye, me too. HOW he doted on that little one, who returned the favor while he still lived there. Thanks, bel. I would love to be able to get his advice, now: my daughter married a Navy man.

The dear doctor was a friend I never met, but he was kind and wise and a good influence on me nonetheless. Thank you for helping me remember.

Happy Birthday Dr. Bill

Me too. I'll be glad to my dying day that I sent him those shower shoes that he said eased his pain so dramatically. I also think that all of us here helped make his final years less lonely. I guess it was just as well that he never learned Braille. (I and others badgered him about it more than once.) But as it turned out, he didn't live all that long after his eyesight got too bad to use a computer.
