While searching for an opportunity to contact Willim Poist, it is only today that I learned that he had passed away. I intended to reach to Bill and Tina to thank them for their pioneer efforts about 20 years ago in bringing Junior Achievement to Albania. We are now further building on their foundations and consolidating Junior Achievement into the formal educational curriculum throughout the country so that Albanian students can access modern and exciting learning experiences that this program provides.
Dear Tina, please accept my gratitude for the contributions to my country and my condolences for losing your beloved husband.

I want to send my condolences to my fellow Poist family members. May God walk next to William Poist in his next chapter in eternity. To those left behind, stand strong and remain the course. May your tears turn to laughter as you remember the times you had with him and know that heaven is the place we all want to achieve.
