We are so saddened to hear of Bill's passing. Such a kind, gentle and talented man. As children, we often heard stories of Bill and Dad as cousins growing up in Ireland. We have, and will always treasure, samples of his woodworking and marquetry skills as well as personalized family genealogies. Nobody but Bill sends wooden post cards addressed in calligraphy and created with his wood burning skills. A Beautiful Man!
