Dear Marilyn & Bill’s family,
When I did not receive a Christmas card from you and Bill, I was afraid to search. My fears were justified. I had the pleasure of working for Bill at The Travelers and considered him to be the best boss that one could ever have. This was over 40 years ago. He truly had skills that should have been bottled. I can remember his fondness for peanuts in a shell and going to Planters Peanuts & buying some & then writing a phone message on his desk with them:)! He truly was a fair and ethical man. God Bless you Bill. Kathleen Stimson

I have been thinking of my old "roomie" a lot lately and regret that I did not take the time to call and see how he was doing. We want you to know you are in our thoughts and prayers. If we can be of any service to you please know we are here for you. May you find peace in the wonderful memories you have of this wonderful man. I shall never forget him and the friendship we forged as we shared recovery from our various ills.
