    Debbie and Linda, my heart goes out to you and your family. I know that complete sadness is overwhelming you right now but remember to lean on others. My office chair is yours if you need a friend when you get back to school.

    Chris and family, Bill was truly one of my best friends. He and I shared a love of books, military stories and of course Freemasonry. His loss is great and I will miss him. May God bless all of you.
