Oh Bill, I miss your beautiful voice, your song, your stories, your jokes, your wisdom, your daily report *blog*. I miss it all. Rest well my most unlikely friend. Thank you for being you. Love, Lori
I only knew Bill through Karaoke. He was always a very pleasant man even though I’m sure sometimes he didn’t feel well. I enjoyed hearing him sing and he was always complimentary of all others who sang. Last Wednesday night at our favorite karaoke hangout he was recognized and a good friend of his, Lori Johnson, sang a song in his honor. He will be missed!!
