So very sorry to hear of Bill’s passing. It is especially sad to lose a former classmate from Weston Union High School because we somehow have to come to grips with how short life really turns out to be. We’ll always remember Bill with that marvelous hairdo he had in high school. The loss to you Donna and all his family has to be so very painful to say nothing of the relentless disease, ALS, which has ended a good life far too soon. Those we love are in our hearts forever and your video paints a picture of a lifetime of wonderful memories and life experiences. May you find strength in the love and support of your family.
