Trish, I have lost contact with you through the years. Had to retire early to career for my Dad and Mom. I retired February 2012, but I was not old enough to draw benefits. They laid me off until I became old enough. Which was a Blessing to me. I have visited death a few times in the last few years. Things seem to be a little better no dialysis and I have not lost all my vision yet. Give me an update on your children who I realize is gown. Christopher is 30 now and has 2 children who are my 1st Great Grandchildren. Think of you and wonder if you went back to Chicago. Lol

Kurt and I met Bill in 1992 together with his daughter Benedikte from Denmark. We were on our way to Brussels where Kurt was working at that time.
We had some lovely time’s on his hotel and Kurt and Bill fixed the whole world in no time. Very entertaining for the rest of us.
Later on we “followed “ Bill and his family through Benedikte.
R.I.P. Bill.
