So sad to hear of Bill's passing. We send condolences to his family and friends. Bill was my friend, neighbor and classmate. He cared a lot about his friends and family, and we all will miss him. In our later years, we were fortunate to visit each other several times. As we visited it was like no time at all had passed from high school until now. Our school memories have been embedded forever. My memories of Bill will never be erased.
