Ken,

I add my thanks to those of others on this forum for your update on Bill and Bobbie.

During my years of running the tech program for GMC Classics, I highly valued Bill's contributions as a presenter on a wide variety of tech topics - and as an audience participant. While Bill is very modest in his demeanor, when Bill spoke, "we all listened!" (ref: EF Hutton brokerage commercial of late 70s/early'80s).

You pegged him right: Bill Bramlett IS Mr. GMC!!

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.
