A memory,

We remember the day that we got a call from Frances to go see how Uncle Bill was at his house, because she believed he was in distress and slurring his words, but he did NOT want to call an ambulance. We sped over and, and he was waiting for us.
We got him loaded up as quick as possible and spared no horses getting to the hospital.

He made a very fast recovery as we recall, and we were so glad we could be there when he needed us. He was a good man in our eyes, and will be missed by all.

Our condolences to all the family.
Sincerely, Ken and Pam
