  21. Just remember Gienva (sp -sorry) his mom yelling at him (BILLY MARSHALL!!). Danny remember you got your name in there a few times. Also remember coming to dinner and staying with you all while my parents went visiting all family members and your Mom making me eat carrots. Still don’t like them. I didn’t realize Billy was a year and 3 days older than me. Time flies. I am so sorry about missing funeral but just found out about Billy today (7 of May). I am deeply sorry for your loss and for not visiting while I had a chance
