I am so sorry to hear of Bill's passing. He was always so fun and funny. We had alot of good times together on the rally squad. Bill called me several years ago out of the blue and we had a lovely long conversation. I am so glad I had that opportunity to touch base with him. His wife Sharon had sent me an email about his death. I plan to contact her soon.
