Sue Ellen (Bone) Bailey


I am so sorry to learn about Bill's passing. I met Bill through my brother Stephen Bone. We (my parents and I) met Bill on one of our visits to Rapid City/Hill City. I always enjoyed listening to his stories about his service days. We even enjoyed staying at Bill's cabin on one of our visits. He has been a great friend to Stephen and his family over the years. I pray that you will find comfort in the memories that you have of Bill as you adjust to life without him. He will be greatly missed. Bless you and your family during this difficult time.
