We were friends of Bill and enjoyed the turkey shoots with him. I had worked with Bill at the VA before his retirement. Bill had a big heart and cared about people and helping them. I used to tell him to rub my hand for good luck at the turkey shoots and he loved to tease me when Janet would beat me. We were both proud to call him our friend. Earl Wyatt
