Bill, you always amazed me with your depth of knowledge about everything....history, politics, computers, ham radio, everything. You taught me so many things. You showed so much courage when you received your diagnosis. You never gave in to feeling sorry for yourself. I'm so glad we got to meet and have a dinner together. You were so sweet to send me and Kyle Christmas cards. I'll never forget you. Your fellow conservatives will truly miss your posts and online conversations. You were a great American patriot.
