Very sorry to hear of Bing's passing. He was such a nice and fun person. I fondly remember our many trips to Michigan to visit the relatives that always included playing golf at Reddemon Farms and having breakfast at Bell's Diner. The story telling and banter were so much fun. Laughing with Bing and Joyce and the cousins is a wonderful memory. My thoughts are with you.

Wonderful memories from late sixties and early seventies of all night bridge games (pre children on our side) on Easy Street. That all ended when Larry and I had our children. My first date with my future husband was at a New Year's Eve party hosted by Bing and Joyce. Great memories rushing back as I write this. Always fun.

Wonderful memories of Bing! Never to be forgotten are his gentle, patient, humorous ways, all of which have blessed our family. Bing is a marvelous husband, father, grandfather, coach, friend. I am so grateful to know him. Susan Nordlinger
