Bill amused us with his great sense of humor and his wonderful storytelling abilities, transporting us each month to adventures near and far, as he shared his writing with the Canandaigua Writers Group. I will miss his smile, and the twinkle in his eye, and, especially, his horse stories.

May they bring peace and comfort and laughter in the years ahead.
