    It was wonderful getting to know Bill at BSR. Whether playing washers or singing about being on a pontoon, Bill and Renee were great together. He will definitely be missed. Thoughts are with you Renee as you adjust to life without Bill.

    I was a childhood friend of Bill’s; we lived a few houses apart. Bill, Dick Straub and I, along with a few others, formed a pretty inseparable bunch for several years in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s. I pray for God’s peace and comfort for his family.
