    I used to work for Dr Holthaus. I don’t know if you remember me, Mrs. Holthaus or Sherrie. It was in the late 70’s. I used to be Ginger Henkel. My thoughts and prayers to all of you during this time.

    Bill was a true professional: a talented, conscientious doctor: an intelligent forward-thinking leader: and a gentle, witty friend. He gave a lot to dentistry, and made his profession better for all Nebraska.
