From Sondra Sondregger

Dear friends-

As requested, I wanted to share the details of the services being held in
Bill Holloway’s honor.  PLEASE distribute this to anyone you
think might want to come and pay their respects and remember Bill.
For those of you who have emailed me and heard little or nothing
back, my deepest apologies.  Be assured that I’ve been reading every
one of them!  If you can imagine how many friends Bill had, you can
imagine what my inbox looks like!

The funeral will be held in Oklahoma City on Wednesday, January 14th
at Hahn-Cook, Draper, and Street funeral home at 11am.

The preliminary obituary, which includes funeral details, can be found
here: http://www.legacy.com/oklahoman/Obituaries.asp?Page=LifeStory&
PersonID=122739972  There will be a more lengthy obituary in the
Oklahoma City paper tomorrow, as well as in the Austin paper.

A celebration of Bill’s life will be held in Austin on Friday,
January 16th at 7pm.  It will be held at the home of Jim O’Brien,

another of Bill’s longtime friends, and it will be held in the same
fashion as Jim’s usual potlucks: please bring a dish to share, a
chair to sit in, and if you play one and want to contribute
musically, a musical instrument.  Several of Bill’s family members
will be present and really look forward to meeting all of his friends
(I think they’re going to get more than they bargained for, but I digress…)
PLEASE NOTE that this will be outdoors, so please dress appropriately!

ANOTHER IMPORTANT NOTE: I am compiling a memory book of Bill’s life,
composed of stories and photos from his friends.  His family didn’t
know as much about Bill’s life in Austin as they would have liked
to, and I want them to know what his world was like and what a
difference he made to so many people here in Austin.   If you have a
favorite story about Bill or a reflection about his life, please
write or print it out to put in this book for his family.  If you
have a photo you can contribute to this, please do so!   Please
either email those to me, or bring them with you to the party on
Friday.

The family is requesting that in lieu of flowers, donations should
be made to the charity of your choice.

Thanks-
Sondra Sondregger
