Oh how I looked forward to seeing Bill at our reunion.  To know that he is gone just breaks my heart.  Many tears have been she'd.  My mother used to drive me crazy talking about him.  She wanted us to be more than good friends, I didn't.  He was such a wonderful friend and great person. It

He was a great friend.  I miss our late night conversations when he couldn't sleep and I was still up working on the computer.  He died way too soon.
