Dear Faimon Family-What a remarkable man! I only knew him as Caitlin's grandfather but was delighted to host him at my home on the day of her graduation from the United States Air Force Academy. I had the honor and pleasure of meeting the entire Faimon Family through Caitlin and what a gift it has been. I wish all of you peace as you remember his amazing life.

Bill was as good a friend as anyone could hope to have. He was a good and fair judge. It was a real pleasure to practice law in his Court. We will all miss him. May he rest in peace.
