  • Hi Judy,
    My sincere condolences for the loss of Bill. I am so sorry and devastated at the news. He was a great guy and will be very much missed.
    I remember every so often seeing him at around 6pm going to get you coffee at Dunkin Donuts. I am sure that he and Joyce will have a lot to talk about up in heaven.
    If you ever would like to chat or need “anything”, I am a phone call away!
