Bill, I remember your daughter & your son being so kind to my father when he was in KDMC. Your daughter is an amazing person. And Tom said she worked with him in the garage at the refinery and he would call her "Mo" and she was the best worker he ever had, everyone loved her, and he misses her hugs. We love you Bill.
