    Bill, Sylvia, Vicki, Nancy & Laurie. Our deepest sympathies go out to you. We were deeply saddened and shocked to hear about Billy's passing. Jodi and I have such fond memories of the time we spent with Billy back on Morningside and in all the years since have never met anyone who was as much of a free spirit as Billy. You all are in our thoughts and prayers.
