I was so saddened to hear of this from Molly. Other friends experienced nearly exactly the same tragedy a month ago. I can't imagine anything more crushing. My deepest sympathies and thoughts are with you.

Billy was one of my close friends and teammates on the water polo team during our time at Bates. Billy had the happiest demeanor of anyone I know, and throughout the 7 years that I knew him I have a hard time picturing him without a big smile on his face.

Billy you will be missed enormously and my heart goes out to your family.

Dear Andy and Libbet, I am so sorry for your loss - I will always remember Billy from his days on the ski team at Suffield. He was a vital member of the team and a good soul. I will be sure to think of him from the tops of the mountains of Vermont this ski season. You all will be in my heart and thoughts in the coming days. Take care.
