RIP Bill. We’ve known each other forever it seems. Growing up just one door down from each other. I see the house where you lived every day and it brings back memories of the times you and Peggy and my brother and I used to ride bikes, caught the school bus and just hung out at your house or ours. We will all have to make the journey that you are on now and I hope that you see all of your loved ones that have passed before you. May you be at peace. I won’t say goodbye I’ll just say so long for now my friend. Say hi to Peg and give her a hug for me.💔🙏🏻
