Having the opportunity to work with Bill these last several months has been a blessing. His good humor, despite his circumstances, made being with him a great deal of fun. Our heartfelt condolences are offered on his passing, but he remains with us in our personal stories and those moments that made us smile and laugh. God Bless, Mary and to ALL of your Family members as well.

With Deepest Regards,
