I was so saddened to hear of Bill's passing. My deepest sympathies, Kathy, and your entire family! I am forever grateful that my Dad was able to visit last year. I know that meant so much to him to see you both one last time, and i am very sure that he was there to greet Bill upon his passing...May they both rest in peace and I am sure they are both reminiscing together right now!
