    I met Bill about a year ago or so at Port City Java in Hampstead when I went to meet several friends. they were friends of Bill and all were sitting together and I joined them. They introduced me to Bill and based on the ensuing conversations, we became friends. It was interesting, if one of the group was absent, immediately one tried to find out if anything was wrong. It was with sadness this past Tuesday that even before I sat down that I was told that Bill had passed. Shortly thereafter, his son arrived and we were informed that this was his son and we all introduced ourselves to James. Immediately it was like "old times" with the ease that we all assumed in our conversation. So to all of Bill's family, rest assured that he will be greatly missed at the morning coffees at Port City Java, in Hampstead, NC by all of his friends in his rehashing of his past stories which were very entertaining. Rest in peace my friend and you will be thought of for a very long time.
