Not sure what to say?

We had some wonderful times together with Bill and Mavis and the Escambia Educators Camping Club. Rest in peace, Bill.

A fine man and a true gentleman. I remember the social get-togethers at my parents house in the 60's. Bill and Mavis were always there. Rest in peace my friend.
