Dear Lynn,
I was devastated to hear of Bill’s passing. I still can’t believe it. I can’t even begin to imagine what you have been going through this last week. I am so sorry for your loss. I was very fortunate to have known Bill for 40 some years, from the time we were room partners in the bunkhouse and working together over the years up to the day he retired. I will always have good memories of Bill. I hope that as
time passes you will find peace and comfort.
