In many ways Bill was a good friend, and I will miss him. Although I took some dance lessons, it was Bill who helped me improve during those senior citizen dances. I still get dizzy just thinking about the Viennese waltz!!! Mowing lawns, getting a Christmas tree, and discussing history and politics are all topics that will continue to provide warm memories of Bill.
