From the Home Office in Djakarta, Indonesia, it’s:
The Bradley’s Top Ten
Reasons Why Bill Should NOT “Retire” from CCI:

12. Might actually have to rent a box truck for next family move.
11. The “little-old-blue-haired-ladies” local #572 would regret the loss of its favorite employer.
10. Who will empty the downstairs vault dehumidifier?
9. “Vince-the-Barber” would have to relocate to E. Amherst!
8. Bradley family will need new budget line: “Hardware.”
7. The “ladies” at Marine Riverside office would cry a river of lonely tears.
6. Bradley family will need new budget line: “Office Supplies.”
5. Mom’s Sanity.
4. Kid’s fear dad will start acting “OLD.”
3. Harold Rolls would spin in his grave through the turn of the century and beyond.
2. Bradley family will need new budget line: “second automobile.”
1. Any legitimate business should have at least one sober employee on staff in the afternoons.

From the Home Office in Terre Haute, IN, it’s:
The Bradley’s Top Ten
Reasons Why Bill Should “Retire” from CCI:

15. Bradley kids don’t need well-paying, low-stress summer employment anymore.
14. Someone else can handle calls to the “Chemical Spill Emergency Evac. Team” for 3 drips of Methylethyl Ketone in the parking lot.
13. Bill doesn’t frequent crack house across the street very often anymore anyways.
12. Can spend more time “hangin’ wit’ da boyz in da hood” on the front stoop on 211.
11. Needs time to compile book of “Bill’s Famous Quotes,” including an in-depth look at the etymology of such favorites as: “cookin’ with gas,” Katie-bar-the-door,” “Hop in ya bed,” and more!
10. Buffalo Public Schools so screwed up, could rotate Bill as PF AD on a permanent basis.
9. Always wanted to write book entitled: “The Ins and Outs of the IRS code: My Life as a Tax Geek.”
8. Pete doesn’t have time to write #9 all alone.
7. Needs time to serve as Nelly’s personal trainer, tennis coach, valet, butler, accountant, secretary, coupon holder at Wegman’s, and clothing inventory manager.
6. Jerry Arensino’s revenues were down in fiscal ‘94.
5. Resolved to make ‘95 the year of the computer.
4. Needs to catch up on late-morning snoozes.
3. US Mint can retire the Susan B Anthony coin and $2 bill, as they are no longer required for CCI payroll.
2. The rest of the Bradley family can retire from its exhaustive CCI officerial duties as well.
1. Needs more time for the titular duties of Opa, Buelo Bill, Sinterklaas, etc.

Truly a loving father, including to Peter and David with whom I have had the pleasure and honor of growing up in Williamsville. Besides his full life and accomplishments, his children bear testament to the values of nurturing family and serving society. My deepest condolences.

Dear Nelly and family, deepest sympathy on the loss of your dear husband. My memory of Bill will always be with a tennis racquet in hand and a big smile on his face. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Our condolences to Nelly and the family.
Bill was such a gentle person and the best Sinterklaas any kid could wish.
We have many happy memories of the Sinterklaas parties at the International institute.
I have had many conversations about his experience with the Dutch and the Japanese.
He was such an engaging and pleasant person.
We will miss him.
