Dear Divya, Luke & Blake,

What can one say about a man who was forthright, opinionated, successful and caring? That his direct and affable ways will truly be missed. I remember Bill giving me "advice". Whether it was on hiring an office assistant or parenting my sons, he was to the point and always right on! His July 4th hospitality was second to none! Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time of transition. Namaste.
