"Call me Laura," I would remind him. And then he says "Lollie." This used to irritate me but is now something I've learned to look forward to. How strange is that? Bill's laugh is like an uncle's. How do uncles laugh? You know. Loud and fills the whole place. He lightly pats any surface while laughing, producing a soft "tap tap" sound that I have come to associate with my meals. Whenever I'm anywhere else and eating, I would anticipate that sound and would get a bit sad that Bill is not around and so I would do it myself.
