I'm so sorry for your loss. I think I've known Bill since I was a baby. He was always very special to me. I have fond memories of sledding down the hill by his house. Band camp. The German Shepherd.

Condolences to Lisa, Esther, and the entire family on the passing of Bill. I have known Bill since the spring of 1960 as a co-worker on the railroad and we shared many memories of railroading, cars, the good memories when we lived beside the Smith family for a year. Memories of sitting out on the side porch on a warm evening, musical get togethers with the organ, helping Ronnie transpose music and playing the saxaphone. Fond memories from long ago from Jim and Joanne.
