I got to catch up with Stacey Davis, director of the city municipal court, and learned that yes, my friend Bill’s death surprised everyone. Just Monday he was doing his normal rounds at the courts, being his usual cheery self. An apparent heart attack took him from a world not ready to give him up.
I understand that Manger will be buried in his ancestral homeland of New Jersey (I think he’d get a kick hearing me refer to it as such). His family will be holding services at the Oklahoma City Chapel 11 a.m. May 11. I have every intention of being there.
