  • We always looked forward to seeing Bill come by walking Cricket and we are going to miss the long talks we had trying to solve the world's problems. Some of my favorite times at the lake were joking with Bill about coming over for dinner. He was a good friend and a great neighbor. We already miss him. Dorthy, we hope you will give us a call if there is anything we can do to help. We would consider it a privilege. Thinking of you, Barry and LaFran
