Dear Family; I'm a bit in shocked as news of Bill's transition from labor to God's Presence just reached me. I pray that The Precious Holy Spirit will encompass you all and speak words to your hearts that will strengthen you for the days ahead and restore peace to your Souls... even as The Lord fills your hearts to overflowing with Loving memories that will remain forever.
I worked with him when the main office was in El Monte, and was there when he retired. I will never forget the positive synergy that seemed to radiate from him, and the unpretentious & gracious way he always received me. I shocked a few folk by walking right into his office without fanfare or aires-a reminder to all that everyone was a valuable member of the team. It was that attitude that endeared him to many at Vons.
May The Lord continue to bless your family as you carry on his legacy.
Saluting a life well lived,
