    Deepest sympathies for your loss of this fine young man whom I was fortunate to meet and know through Carolina swimming. I'll always remember him smiling.

    Bill and I were good friends when I lived in Wilmington. We had many intense chats & hearty laughs. He always made me smile and he always wanted to know if I remembered the pistachios on our lazy days wave watching on Wrightsville Beach. I miss you buddy.

    Diane, I am so sorry for your loss. You must miss him so very much. He was the first person I met when I moved to Emerald Isle, NC. He was so kind to me and my son, teaching us all about NC. I'm just glad I found him again in May. I miss him.
