Dear Josephine, I am sorry to hear about the death of Bill. He was a good Christian man and I certainly looked up to him in many ways. He was a good role model for us young guys when I worked with him in construction for the Massaro Brothers. I hope you are doing well. May God be with you and continue to bless you.
