Dear Susan, Bill and Dawn, we just saw this now about Bill. We are so sorry for your loss! We think of you as extended family and really enjoyed our times together when you would visit us in Florida, especially going to Visani's for the "Elvis" tribute shows and the wonderful St. Patricks Day dinners that became a tradition! We feel so fortunate to have known such a wonderful man. God Bless you.
Love you
