Bill Bramlett

For those of you who've been GMCers for a while, MR. GMC is Bill Bramlett
of Loveland, CO.  Today being his 94th birthday, I just called him.  Would
you believe, he picked up on the second ring and sounds more coherent than
I feel, ten years his junior!  He's no longer springing from supine on a
creeper to standing erect, but he's still chugging along!  :-)

I won't cover details, but Bobbie's not doing too well, with physical
problems as well as advanced dementia.  A nurse granddaughter has taken her
into their home since Bill can no longer meet her needs.  Bill himself is
planning to move into his GMC, parked on a SIL's ranch, after their house
sells.

Everyone please keep Bill & Bobbie, and the rest of our elderly GMCers, in
your prayers.

Bill is a VERY talented guy, not to mention a genuinely nice person.

I hope I am still around at his age, much less in as good shape.

Happy Birthday to Bill!

Thank you Ken for the update - even if it is not the best news. Bill is an intelligent Gentleman!  Awesome friend willing to share all the GMC knowledge.
