Bill, so saddened to hear this ! Do you remember I kept you when Inez went to the hospital to have him and I’m the one that named him! Such sweet memories I have of the OBrien family and my Aunt Blanche and Uncle Johnnie! Thoughts and prayers coming your and Lynn’s way as you go thru this trying time .
