    Bill was so thoughtful. He brought me wood scraps to start my fire in my fireplace. He was an excellent furniture maker. I’m lucky to have a bed frame that he made to match my furniture. He was a good cook too, and I enjoyed eating with him and Marcy at their home, and going out to eat with him and Marcy. We’ll miss you, Bill! Your kindness will remain with me forever. My sympathy to Marcy, your children and all your family. Love, Elaine Warshauer
