I was a good friend of Bill's at Maclean High School, in fact I considered him a best friend, and I am deeply saddened to hear of his recent death. Bill and I were both new to the area; he had come from Alabama, and I from England and it was this 'newness' which probably brought us together. We soon realised that we had a great deal in common, fundamentally a similar comedic outlook on our lives, which allowed us to gently mock school and each other. I haven't seen Bill since he came to England for a short holiday, after an initial year at Westpoint, however, he has always remained in my heart and my memories. Bill, I wish we hadn't lived so far apart after school, I know our friendship was such that it will always live on. You epitomised loyalty and I know you will live on in your family and in all those who had the good fortune to know you. Bless you for touching my life, thank you for your friendship, I will always remember your smile, your sense of humour, and your absolute honesty to me.
