  1. Dear Della, So sorry to hear of your loss of your ‘sweet william’ of so many good years of your life…together. Linda and Don Conemac notified me of Bill’s death and funeral. Such lovely memories, for me, of our good times with our girl babies and family in the early 1950′s after we were married to two good, buddies….Bill and Fred Sebald. Yes…my good memories, of family, dear friends and wonderful companions is still a vital part of my own life…too. I am living in Reno NV and Fred and his second wife are living in Wellington Nevada. Debbie is now 62 and lives in nearby Gardnerville so she is in contact with her dad. All my best feelings and memories are of our times of good life and living in the L.A. area and of our dear friends from our earliest memories. Please contact me or you may see my latest photos and entries on facebook: Gail Patricia Bauderer…my birth name that I have enjoyed for my 82 years of life. I will see that Debbie gets to pass on this sad news to Fred. He was my wonderful partner for more than 45 years of unforgettable memories that can not fade away from our hearts and minds….just as they will not fade from your heart and mind about your “Bill”. Love Pat………..
