My memories of Uncle Bill and Aunt Pat are very special...reflective of two of the most kind hearted, fun loving, generous people I've ever known. I cherish the time I spent with both of them and will miss them dearly. I loved talking baseball with Uncle Bill...even though I'm not much of a fan myself. When I close my eyes, I can see my Aunt Pat dancing with the Nez Perce drummers at the park in the Grangeville. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

Love...Tina and Mike
