Bill the Lion

Grace came home with heart breaking news the other day.  One of her classmates had informed the class that Bill the Lion at the zoo had cancer and that he was soon going to pass away.  Grace's love for Bill the Lion goes back to when she was 1 year old.  We would go to the zoo on almost a daily basis.  Each visit she would only want to go to see Bill and nothing else.  We would have to convince her to go to other areas and often time she would just fall asleep or close her eyes so she didn't have to look at other animals. Bill will be greatly missed by Grace and many other children of Fort Wayne.
