Please accept my sympathy to your family. Bill was fortunate to have a very special family. I was active with the youth way back then and through John and Heidi got to know you all. I was especially impacted when Heiki told me how her family was in East Germany and she dare not go there for fear they would not let her out. And I remember John and I for some reason were on a motorcycle together with me driving. He was not happy with me when we were done. I felt Bill always handled himself as a gentleman. I know you will miss him terribly.

I am privileged to have your families acquaintance
