I met William James Bull on February 4, 1964.  He swept me off my feet; wining, dining, gifts, great vacations, and we traveled all over.  He gave me two great sons; Christopher (Sammy) and Anthony, who together have given us two beautiful granddaughters.  We adore them, Alex and Gabby.

My husband would do anything for anybody (including giving away money for no reason).  I wouldn't!  Now my husband is up in heaven with our son Christopher; and his two sons from his previous marriage, Danny and Billy.

It's March 13th and I miss you so much.  I can't wait to see you and Sammy up in heaven.  I love you so much.

Love always and forever,
your wife Judy.

p.s. Everyone else misses you alot too.  Bobby, Richard, Alice and all of your nieces and nephews, great friends, real friends and in-laws.

We Love You, Hon, Babe.
