My heart is heavy after reading about Bill's passing and my love and prayers are with you, Mary. He will be greatly missed! As a fellow St. James member I found comfort seeing you and Bill together at Mass and felt so special sharing your hugs and best wishes.

Bill was a good man who cared deeply for all of us who worked with him. His sense of humor was infectious! He made a real difference in my career and my life. I’ll miss him but will have so many memories of this wonderful man.
