Sorry to hear about Bill's death but also happy that you have 69 years of good memories to help you through your loss. You two were a fixture at the Hobart church and it won't be the same now.

I will always have fond memories of Bill as I visited with him in his office at SKCS and we talked about the latest happenings around school or the latest breakthroughs in the compute r field. Bill was one of the good guys! Condolences to all his family.
