    I am so sorry to hear about Uncle Bit's passing. I literally found out by accident yesterday 5/27/2018. I have memories of Uncle Bit but I was very young and, although still there, they have faded into a fog. I wish I had known him better, much better but distance was a huge obstacle. He lived a long, successful life. I remember dad telling me about his responsibilities in the "white room" at Cape Canavaral. My dad always spoke highly of him and was obviously proud to have him as a brother.
    My deepest sympathies go out to Aunt Gloria, Jeff and the family. I'm so sorry.
