I am so sad to read that Bill has left us for a better place. I will always remember his spark of great wit and humor in his daily visits to the office of the building he called home. I worked in that office for 5 years and so enjoyed knowing Bill and laughing with him. He was always a bright spot in the day when he appeared! He continued enlightening many of us with his clever emails and I will greatly miss his light. May God bless Bill in his new home and surround his earthly family with comfort in wonderful memories!
