Eddie and family -- I am so sorry about the passing of Bill. He and your mom were a very important part of my parents' and our family's lives. The "4 O'Clock Club" of Woodland Way and Belview shared many good times over those years/decades and their many trips and neighborhood fun together. We are sad, but remembering him so fondly. So many funny stories! A good friend and neighbor.
