Dear Pat and Family, So sorry to hear about the loss of Uncle Bill. When I think about him I think of him and my dad Bob, Big Jimmy and Jackie playing their guitars and laughing. I was very fortunate to have him as my uncle and I know that there is beautiful music in heaven this day! Please know that you are all in my prayers. Love, Bonnie Grant Wallace and husband John.
