I have known Bill since the 9th grade at Gilmour Academy. We played soccer together, side by side, as we defended our team to many victories. We actually made our goalkeeper look much much better than he really was!!!
I will miss that perpetual smile he always wore and the conversations we had over the phone and in the rooms.
Billy.... I will see you on the other side, when it is my turn to go..
