Char, so very sad to hear we have lost your Bill. I had just sent him a birthday message.....didn't realize he'd been in hospice. I wish we could all celebrate his life together, but obviously we cannot right now. I'll be thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers in the days ahead. Much love...❤🙏🏻❤
