I did not know until now. I'm so sorry to hear. Bill is one of my favorite people I have ever met in life. My favorite memory is when he and Edith played Joseph and Mary in the Christmas program and surprised everybody by bringing a real baby. I know he will be SO missed. Sending love to Edith and the family. Dear Lord please cover them.
