To my former Marymount grade school classmate Margo, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Bill. My brother, Rich, and I were reminiscing about Bill and you. We remember the yellow school bus stopping to pick up Bill. He was always kind and fun to ride with to Marymount! May God bless you during this time of sorrow and sadness. My thoughts are with you.
