    I am so sorry to hear of Bill’s passing. I remember him and Barbara visiting my parents. During the time my dad started with dementia Bill and Barbara were a ray of sunshine and laughter. They’d sit out on my parents back porch for hours, simply having a good time. We can hope we all can fill our DASH in life with the kind, giving, caring spirit they offered to many.

    I’m sorry to hear of Bills passing. I worked with Bill for a number of years at Chemical Leaman. I was in dispatch and dealing with Bill was always easy. He was always so even tempered and just a good guy to talk to and have a laugh with. Good memories of a fine man. My sympathies to you family.
