I know this is years late, but I just came across this news. So sorry that we have fallen out of touch after so long. I have very fond memories of growing up with Bill and June around for so many special occasions. Bill was always warm, friendly and helpful. I am proud to have known him and call him my friend. Although years have gone by since his passing, I am so sorry for his loss and wish his family peace. June, I am sure that you miss him still. You and your family can always celebrate the great man that you have had in your life.
