We were so sad to hear about the sudden passing of Bill. Our deepest sympathy to all of you for the shock, pain and sense of loss you must be feeling. It seems far too soon for him to be gone. I will remember him as kind, gentle and highly intelligent, determined to live life on his own terms.
With love,
Kathryn, Dan Claire and Cole
