I miss you Will. You were such a kind and gentle person. Thank you for the memories, and getting me out of a jam when the secret service agents started swarming me for my shenanigans in front of the White-House. ;)I wish we would have stayed in contact. It turns out we were living in the same town. I wish I had known. We could of hung out one last time. Rest in peace my friend.

My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. I have very fond memories from high school of Bill. He was a kind person and always had a smile for me.
