    We were deeply saddened to read about Bill’s passing. Even though we only saw each other at unexpected meetings at PJCC or Hope House dinners, Bill kept our “cousin connection” via his annual Christmas cards. We always appreciated his unfailing effort to extend happy holiday wishes to us.
    It’s our hope that your many memories will be a blessing this holiday and beyond.
