To Dear William, who was the most charming gentleman I had met in a long long while. It is one of my deepest regrets that I didn't visit you at your home as planned to see your vast collection of Ray Johnson works at your place. RIP. I am still circulating Ray's postcards.

A great man.

My dear friend, thank you for everything you taught me over the last 25 years in the arts as well as in life.

My deepest condolences, I just got the announcement today in the mail. William Wilson was a lovely man, so devoted to his mother's art work and to Ray Johnson's. I'm very sorry to hear of his passing and will miss running into him at art events.

I just heard of your father's passing. His friends and I are devastated and I am sorry for your loss.

I met Bill at Cornelia street Books in 1977 for the signing of Why I Don't Write like Franz Kafka.
Since 1995 Bill has been my last best link to Ray Jonson and the wonder of our early years. Bill was the person I trusted most
for insights into Ray's work and I was pleased over these years to read his writings and remembrances.

I met Bill at the Cornelia Street Books Store in 1977 for the signing of his book Why I Don't Write like Franz Kafka. Bill was my last best link to Ray Johnson and the person I trusted most for continuing insights into his work and those brave days.

Dear Bill: All our friendship and conversations came back when I heard the sad news. I sent you my latest book just ten days ago, and now wonder what you would have thought of it, since so much of it derives from your thoughts and humors.

Bill, not a week goes by without a postcard or letter you wrote my father turning up in my studio, with it so many memories. Hopefully you are catching up with Ralph, lots to share. You will be missed by all of us in the Humphrey household. My thoughts are with your children and grandchildren.

Lost touch over the years but I will always remember the kindness and generosity Bill and his mother showed to me when I was in New York (in 1973?). Last time I saw Bill I remember it was a clear but cold October day and he gave me a coat because I didn't have one and money for a Greyhound bus to Michigan too. That's just the kind of man he was, helping people along the way.
