Dear Carole and Dave--I am so very sorry to learn of the passing of your dad. I have known and worked with him since the early days of the Medicare program. We all worked hard to get the program up and running but also enjoyed many after-work happy hours to relieve the stress of the day. He was one of a kind and will truly be missed by those of us who were fortunate to have known him. May he rest in peace. My deepest condolences to you and your families. Barbara Bernstein

Carol, whenever I think of Bill, it's always a fun memory. It seems like it was always in a party atmosphere and he was always laughing. It was always great to see you two together. So sorry for your loss.

Carol and Dave,
I am saddened by the passing of your Dad. I have known him for more years than I can count. We worked and played together for a very long time. He was a friend of my Dad also. My thoughts are with your families.
