Condolence & Memory Journal

Karen and I just heard this sad news today. What a loss for us and for our neighborhood. Bill was a great neighbor and a very nice man. How can we forget his license plate Trombone Man. We will miss you, Bill. RIP

It was always a pleasure to play with Bill in any band or orchestra. He was a delightful person and I was uplifted anytime I saw him.

Ah Bill, rest easy. A wonderful musician, pianist as well as trombonist, and a sharp, humorous guy. Terry and family I send condolences.
