Two of Bill’s sons, Peter and John Woodin, attended SLICS 18 to meet Bill and Beth’s friends and to learn all they could about cartridge collecting and cartridge collectors. In addition to spending most of the day Friday in the show hall, they attended the Thursday night seminar and the Friday night banquet and live auction. This is part of an email from Peter Woodin to me:
I also wanted to let you know how much John and I enjoyed coming to the St. Louis show. Folks were so incredibly welcoming and so generous in sharing with us their many vivid and heartfelt memories of our father and Beth. It was an amazing experience, and gave us such a strong sense of Dad and Beth’s role in the cartridge collecting world, which neither John nor I had really understood, and the high regard in which they were held.
Please convey our thanks and deep appreciation to all for the warm and gracious welcome we received.
