I will always have only wonderful memories of Bill even if I haven't seen him for awhile. So sorry for all of you, and wishing the good memories overtake the difficult ones.
Please accept my heartfelt sympathy at such a difficult time as this. Thoughts and prayers, Alice Lipinski Tierney
I have so many wonderful memories of Bill. He was my brother's best friend and spent the summer of 1954 touring Europe with him (Glenn Peer). Our families were extremely close and except for a cousin in NJ, Bill has known me longer than anyone else. I am so sad to learn of his passing; I was in the hospital and just learned today. Sending deepest sympathy to you. He was a wonderful man. RIP, dear Bill. Love always, Betty Peer Smith.
