To Bill's family. Ron and I worked with Bill at TWA. He was truly a good person who made work a joy. Goodness should have been his name. May God bless all of you as He receives Bill home. Ron and Sharon Sutton

Dear Janet and Family
What does someone say at a time like this, it is as though a few words are to many and a thousand are not enough. I guess the best I can do is I knew Bill almost 60 years and he was and always will be known as my friend.
