  • Marion; You probably don't remember us because we moved away from the Little Rock area several years ago, but we enjoyed many good meetings for HBA of GLR with you and Bill as well as with the Auxillary as a fellow past-president and we just want to express our deepest sympathies in your loss. I know that Bill was the most important person in your life and that you will miss him as will all who knew and loved him.
