We were friends immediately! It is truly my honor to have been considered his friend. In the short time Bill and I worked together, I felt a life-long kinship.
Bill's incredibly unique personality, compassion and empathy, passion for life, love of his family, humor, and humility are what made him special. He changed the dynamics in a room immediately and made it more amiable and memorable. He was amazingly resilient no matter the challenge!
He coached me to better understand others, situations, and circumstance - he made me a better person.
Bill's last personal message to me:
"...Understand there is a change in the works for you - good for you, bad for us...gonna miss you brother..."
Bill, WE'RE gonna miss you, brother!
Connie, Josh, and Michelle take comfort in the fact that Bill ALWAYS and fondly spoke of you and loved you! May God bless you and watch over you.
