    My deepest sympathies to you and your family. I had the honor of working with Bill years ago at Israels, and he was always a great guy to work with. Your statement about his quick wit is an understatement and we enjoyed many good laughs together. May the love he had for you as well as great memories help sustain you in the months and years ahead.
