  1. I’m so very sorry to hear of Bill’s passing. He had a rich and wonderful life and has left a legacy for all his family and friends. Bill was loved by many. I won’t be able to attend the Celebration of Life in person as I don’t arrive from Australia until late June but I will be there in spirit and my Dad and the Hays, Marshalls, and Mitchells will be there to represent those of us in Aus.
