    I didn't know Bill well but he had a ready smile for everyone and had a quick wit and sense of humor. I liked listening to him sing at karaoke. I met him through a mutual friend who has since passed also, and my prayers go out to the family and friends he leaves behind. My deepest condolences.

    So very sorry to hear of Bill's passing. He will be missed. At times, I can hear him laughing and telling stories. I do have some fond memories.
