So sorry for your loss. Cousin Bill was an inspiration to me as a teacher. I enjoyed our educational discussions and his sense of dedication and humor. We both made buttons with our students. I still have the buttons he made for me - one celebrating the 200th anniversary of the USA and one that says "Who Cares?". He was a serious but sensitive man. So very glad we were able to have him in our lives. We will miss him.
