  1. I just read about Bill’s passing this moment. I am sorry for your families loss. I had many good talks with him and I learned a lot from those conversations. I will remember those lucid, honest conversations for a long time. We worked on some real estate matters, allowing me to see his artwork at his home, read his book, and meet some family members. He was a good man, had flaws as we all do, but I am thankful for our friendship later in his years.
