March 20. Twenty one years ago I lost Bill Avery, my father in law and best friend. Yup, the two aren't ordinarily synonymous. My then-wife, Frances, was pregnant with his grandson.
In May, 1985 Mark was born at Fairfax Hospital. Eighteen years and a couple of days later, Frances died in Fairfax Hospital, and I buried her next to Bill. Here's a website memorial to them.
