 I had some fond memories of Bill and wish we had stayed in touch ... so sorry to hear that he is gone and at a such a young age ... RIP ... Bill.

My best friend in high school; he is missed.  Was a great Vet.  Worked way too hard.

We were out of school by 2:00 every day,  to lift weights, and play handball at the old YMCA.

I'll never forget sitting next to Bill in Mrs.Bells double math class. He'd scratch his head look at me and say I don't get this, and we'd both laugh. We spent considerable time during free period getting help from Mrs. Bell.
