Sad News

Dear friends of Bill,

On Wednesday, November 25, we had to let Bill go. He died peacefully, surrounded by people who loved him very much.

Thank you all for your caring and concern during these difficult weeks. We are planning a memorial service and will publish the specifics here once we have them.

Over and Out

Now that Billy is through the operation, we're going to let him pick up handling his own PR when he feels like doing it. Probably the best way to be notified of new activity is to subscribe to the blog - you'll get an email when there's an update. If anyone needs to get in touch before then, you can reach me at

We have loved hearing from all of you and are very thankful for all of the support we've been getting from all of Bill's loved ones. Thank you from the whole family.
