Sorry to hear of Bill's passing. I worked with him at TVA and he was always willing to advise me on work related and personal issues both as a mentor and friend.

Ernie, I was saddened to find that Bill had passed on so quickly after speaking with you earlier. I always thought of Bill as a good friend and colleague. He was a good man who will be missed by his many friends.
