    Shirley, Dave and Paul:

    I was so sad to learn about Bill’s passing. He was a great guy – enjoyed working for and learning from him. His dry sense of humor and patience in teaching me some of the fundamentals of communications are great memories. Julie and I send our deepest condolences and pray for your family.
