Thanks Jeb.  I'm certain your visit was a happy occasion for Bill.

An update on our friend Bill:

 

 Bill's health is not improving as well as we all wished it would.  He is being transferred from the rehab facility to a nursing home.

 

Please continue to keep Bill in your thoughts and prayers.

A bit of good news-according to Bill's sister Peggy, for the moment he will remain at the rehab facility. I gather it will be a day by day decision.

 

Thank you all.

Bill's sister updated me this morning.  About a week ago,Bill took a turn for the worse.  Please pray for Bill and for his family. The next couple of days will be very hard time for them.

Bill, praying for your speedy recovery. We need you back on the forum. I thouroughly enjoyed talking with you in Atlanta about one of our favorite trains, L&N/NC&StL Dixie Flyer.

Bill, if you are able to read this Forum, I havent forgotten you. I still come down to Atlanta each year during April, stay at Crowne Plaza Ravinia, go to the Atlanta Symphony , and visit my several friends in the area. I have checked your Church's bulletin for any updates on your condition; they ask for prayers, and even if my religion is other than Roman Catholic, I hope mine are welcome.

I look forward to the day when we can meet again at MARTA Dunwoody and have a Breakfast together; GBN
