Dear Bill, Kay and family: I happened upon this looking for someone else. I am so glad I did. You were such a good son,Bill. All of you did your best to make her feel happy, comfortable and loved as the southern belle for which she will be remembered. She is now back in old Miss,floating on her inner tube down the river!  So many stories to be remembered.  One could only hope ones’ own children will be as devoted,  as you were to Sylvia.  I so enjoyed knowing you and yours.  warmest regards, dch
