Dad, AKA Uncle Bill, Big Bill, Papa is not deceased.
I apologize to the rest of the clan for using the blog as an Amber Alert system. But the message must get out that our beloved father, uncle, brother in law is alive and well and smoking in his Hollywood Florida domicile. The South Florida crew maybe small be we are loving and take good care of one another. We do not need interlopers calling us in panic saying there is something wrong with Big Bill because he is not answering his phone. To the interlopers, did it ever come to your attention that Big Bill likes to sleep from time to time? Do you guys realize that from time to time cell phones need to be recharged? People have been known to lose their cell phone. I could go on and on about the myriad of reasons why our father did not answer his phone.
PS--This will be a major topic of discussion at Uncle James' Saturday breakfast. The SoFlo crew will set up a chain of command to handle information dissemination.
