I first met Dr. Bill in 1948 while we played basketball on the 343rd Bomb Sqdn. team in Spokane, Washington. We were friends ever since. My wife enjoyed her first meeting when we attended St. Patricks Cathedral in NY City in 1953 with Bill. We were fortunate to stop in Austin on our trip around the USA in 1995 and enjoyed time with Janet and Bill. My last visit was to play golf when another friend and I flew to Austin for a week in January of 2009 just before a birthday.
God Bless Bill's wonderful family and I only wish I could have been there in Austin for the Memorial Service.
