We were so sorry to get the news about Bill. We shared some happy fun times with him and Holly. Once we went on a sight seeing cruise at Lake Norman and my hat flew off into the water! I remember Bill really got a kick out of that. One of the crew members fished it out of the water for me.

We all shared many Christmas parties together as well. We would go out for dinner and just spend time together.
Our Thoughts and Prayers are with the family,
Always friends, Bill & Rita Isaacson

Bill and I talked quite a bit before our last reunion. We shared thoughts about football, especially the Dallas Cowboys and Carolina Panthers. While at the reunion, he gifted me a Carolina Panthers cap. He was a genuinely nice and kind man.

The passing of a classmate you have known for so many years is devastating. I talked kand texted with Bill 5 to 7 years ago. He was upbeat, He was silly as usual Hisbhumor was in tact. He did share with me that he had diabetes and cancer. Yet he was upbeat on making all the right choices to still live for many more years. I am absolutely shocked by this news of his death! Perhaps it is not proper to ask what happened, yet it helps me with closure.
I send so much love and wrap my arms around his family. Bill was one amazing classmate. I’ll miss that he has passed from our sight.
