Kathy, myself and our family want to express our deepest sympathy to Bill's family and of course particularly to Sharon. We happily look back on times when Bill would look at a fishing picture stating he caught that fish in Costa Rica only to be reminded he hadn't been there at the time.....and fishing with our daughter Jenessa...... priceless moments we will cherish forever. Sharon be strong and remember to lean on friends and family for support, we are here for you. Bob
