Dear MaryAnn,

what a wonderful idea :clap: Here is my contribution, shouting "surprise", singing "For he's a jolly good fellow" and saying some words, I hope it is OK, you can use whichever part you feel is useful:

Thank you. It was a fun project and you gave me such wonderful material to work with!

Ann (icequeen) and I have both sent him an e-mail to inform him of the recording. I tried attaching an mp3 to my e-mail. Hopefully one of our messages will get through to Bill or his family.

Absolutely lovely. I'm sure Bill will love it.
So little space, so much to say.
