I believe Bill Hunt knew my 2013 deceased husband and lawyer, James H. Rownd. If so I remember being the 1st female to attend an Agonis Luncheon many years ago. My deepest sympathies to the Hunt family and if I am incorrect about knowing him I apologize. Jim Rownd was 16 years older than I and got me my only divorce back in Columbus. Karen E.

We lived just two doors East growing up and never would have believed we would live in Colonel Hunts home as our very first home as a young married couple. i send our deepest sympathy for your loss.
