Billed died last night from a brave fight with cancer, first in the esophagus and then after a horrendous surgery the cancer spread to the liver. My sister, Diane, is bereft as are we. We will miss Bill. He loved life and his family. I will always remember the day they spent with us a few years ago at our farm. Bill was reading Garrison Geillor's joke book. He would break into loud enjoyable laughter time after time as he got through the book. He stayed with it all day. I will remember him as one who loved people and loved to laugh.
