    Dear Christine and Family,
    I was friends with Bill Mincemoyer I and have often thought about his family and that brought me to Mrs. Mincemoyer’s obituary. I’m sorry for your loss: your Mother and Grandmother. I did not know Mrs. Mincemoyer but Bill and I were good friends while he was at Cherry Point, NC. Bill and I talked a lot about families and how life was different: being from different parts of the country. I didn’t know that Mark had passed away a few months later. Mrs. Mincemoyer must have been quite a strong and courageous woman to have endured such tragedy in her life. My prayers are with your family.
