    Bill was a great friend and mentor. We had many great hunting and fishing adventures. If you want I have some images of these adventures to share with family and friends.
    I would like to thank and express appreciation to Anne Taylor who has been an outstanding neighbor and taken great care of Bill over the past few years.
