When you two came to our house & met my husband, he was astounded by the sharpness of your memories. I was tickled to note that you could also complete each others' sentences. Truly you were two peas in a pod! I'm so sad to think of you alone now, Millie. My love to you, & condolences to the family. His rich humor (& tall tales of Petey the Great) will be missed.

I use to hide when I was at my grandparents as a little girl when Uncle Bill and Aunt Millie would visit.
He would pinch my cheeks so hard.
Then he'd give me a hug

Bill and Millie were very special friends of our family. We spent quite a bit of time with them growing up. I loved listening to all the funny fishing stories he would tell. Bill will be dearly missed. Prayers for Millie and all the family.
