Rosann I am sorry to hear of Bill's passing. I enjoyed working with Bill years ago and learned so much from him. His patience with a new student and employee was tremendous.

I am sorry to hear about Bill's passing. Every year, he would fly a Red Cross flag for us during the month of March. One year, he was so enthusiastic that he asked me if he could have another one to fly at home. I was touched and gave him the extra one that I had in the car. I forgot, however, that I needed to save one to fly at the Red Cross office - so that year, we didn't have one to fly! Everyone at the chapter had a good laugh at my expense, but I will always remember how kind Bill was each year when I came to drop off the flags. My thoughts are with his family & friends during this difficult time.
