  • I was just trying to get in touch with your mom ,(my Aunt Bobbie) , and sadly ran across her obituary. I am so sorry to learn of your parents’ passing. Her sister Janice had just lost her husband and I was hoping to get the two of them together on the phone. Take care Bill. I will keep you in my prayers even at this late date.
