Note

I spoke with Diane Buss (who referred to Bill as Uncle Bill) in California. She told me Uncle Bill had spoken of Joan before and said she was the love of his life. She said he still loved her when he died and that he blamed her mother Viola for splitting them up. She said Viola thought he was "trash" and was unworthy of her daughter.
