Bill was such a kind and encouraging neighbor and a positive influence for me in my childhood. He was happy to allow me use of his pond and property to enjoy nature and look for critters of various kinds. It was always a joy to chat with him on the road. Bill brought cheer to the woods of Merkel Road.
