Thank you for your service Bill!!
I am sorry for your families loss Bob and Jamie. It sounds like your dad was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and son.

We brought it down to his shop where he hooked it up to one of the instruments he used to service Television sets - Yeah, he could fix them too! His non-judgmental, constructive opinion of my project led, I believe, to my career in the electronics field.

I think Bills motto was "family first". Many, many years ago, when I was a struggling single Mom, he and Frances gave me $100 cash for Christmas. I never forgot it. It was like $1,000. I bought the boys Winter coats and clothes. The money helped so much.
