Kay, I'm so sorry for your loss. And I'm sorry I didn't make it to the calling hours, but I didn't read Thursday's paper until Saturday. I always enjoyed visits with Bill at Wellesley Island. He had a great sense of humor and was respected by all the maintenance employees at the park. He had a way of putting everyone around him at ease and was a natural leader. I know he'll be missed by all those he touched.
