Letter to Charlie Company From Mrs. Bernice Geier - September 2, 2003

Many Thanks to you for inviting my family and me to this reunion.  I am so glad that I came. The welcome that we received was so warm and kind hearted. It's amazing to know that after 36 years the memory of my son Bill still lives in the hearts of his friends.  I especially enjoyed the sharing of your personal relationships with Bil.
