    Though I have never meet Bill (or at least I don’t think so) just reading the guest book- he touched many people- especially in the Ham radio arena- many signed the book with a 73 which means- best regards and OM which means old man (best friend). Sad to think such a young life- who touched many- is gone too soon because it all felt too painful. My deepest prayers are with the family.
