    Dear Ramona, I heard the sad news of Bill's death in an email from Janice. My sincere condolences. She said she had spoken to him recently and was quite distraught with his passing. She has remained a great friend. I will always remember you, Bill and all the other crazy "Beach People" in my many happy visits to Wrightsville. Bill will be missed by many. May your sadness today be replaced by the many fine memories he gave us all. Best wishes always, Woody Fox
