    This is my grandfather I never met. He passed away when my mom was nine-years-old. He fought in WWII, survived it, and died in 1948 during an afternoon nap at 40, probably of a heart attack, possibly of an aneurism. This changed my mother and her brother\'s life forever. I wish I\'d had the opportunity to know him, in all pics, there is an easy and impish smile. Family lore is, my grandmother loved him to the ends of earth, \"Kay sure loved Bill.\" I feel he had a great sense of humour, his smile in most pics tells all.
    On the upside, she remarried at 44, he 15 years younger and the grandpa I grew up with was a lovely and kind man... Jack Betteridge.
