My condolences to my extended family. I remember my visits to their house with my grandparents when I was a little girl. It was always one of the visits I looked forward to the most. My mom, sister and I send our love to Aunt Laura. May Uncle Bill rest in peace. ♡

Bill was our mayor for our water exercise class at LA Fit and was loved by all. I was blessed to know him for many, many years and can only dream of loving and living the way he and Laura do. He will be greatly missed and i thought of them often after moving away. My sincerest condolences to all, especially Laura. Hugs.
