Dear Susan & Family, I am very sorry to hear of your loss. I worked with Bill for many years at Kemira. We had a great relationship. In addition to work, he volunteered a lot with the education of teachers and students in the area with demonstrations and workshops. We had some good times together. He was a great friend. My sincerest sympathies to you and the family. My prayers go out to Bill. Sincerely, George

My prayers are with you, Susan, through this most difficult time. I wish I could sit with you, but my own physical problems prevent it at this time. Please call on me if I can help in any way. Hugs and prayers, Cindy Rowland

Sorry to hear about Bill. We started about the same time at American Cyanamide. Once posed as Bill's pastor so I could go in to visit him with his daughters after he had heart surgery. God be with you during this time Susan. Clayton
