Dear Bill, Well, It truly saddens me to say it has been a very long time since I seen you. Yet I have never forgotten your smile and your laugh. I have always remembered your happy mood, or had some way to make me laugh. Or some silly thing to say, or interesting little tid-bit of information. I realize now just how a couple of those tid-bits had quite an impact on my life, and who I am today. In a positive way. I want to thank you for being a part of my childhood, and a part of my family. I know that wherever you are now, you are creating smiles!!!! Until we meet again!!! Loving Regards, Kristy Layton Repkin
