    Bill was a white knight for my family at very sad time. He and Rhobie gave us the strength to get through the loss of my brother and to deal with all the heart breaks and headaches that follow the loss. To say that he was a gentleman is an understatement. We know he will be missed by anyone lucky enough to have known him.
