When John Wilson (Bill) Moore, Janet’s dad, joined the Navy, they still used bugles to pass messages to the crew. One of those was “Recall.” Recall means it is time to stand down from duties. John just heard Recall for the final time.
He left us this morning. He was surrounded by his three daughters who have nursed him non-stop for five weeks. He left us calmly and peacefully on a cloud of their love. Never was a man so blessed. Being a Navy man, he would now say it’s time to police up the area and get underway. His voyage is charted. For him there will be no more reefs and shoals.
Anchors Aweigh, Bill. We are all better for your presence among us.
