    Bill was the most kind-hearted, laid back, non-judgemental person I've ever known. To Sara and Eric - I'm sure you're Dad is kicking himself right now for leaving you guys so soon. Just remember that he'll always be with you. He will be greatly missed by everyone that ever had the chance to know him. Take care - Jenny
