Billy we are all going to miss our longggg phone conversations with you “not sure if they were conversations since you did 99% of the talking”. I’ll never forget all the times me you & Frank played hot pepper with Dad (baseball). Many late nights playing Chess together until the sun came up. Let’s not forget the great times we all had in Boy Scout Troop 172. Then when we all grew up, “some of us never grew up” the years working together in the newspaper industry “Thanks To Uncle Mario” kept us closer for a very long time. There might be some things we might have changed if we got to do it all over again, but rest assure ain’t nobody could change Wild Bill, you did it your way 100% of the time.
Love Ya, will miss you. Rest In Peace big brother & my Union Brother.
