I have lost a great friend and basically a second father to me. For many years Bill and Pat went to Dinner with Kim an I almost every Friday night and occasionally other nights when everyone could. He was a mentor and a awesome man. We will miss him beyond words can say. My thoughts and prayers for Pat ,family, an friends. Bill was a very pleasant person to be around even if he was having a terrible day. We will miss him dearly.
