  2. Dear Kaye, I am so very sorry to hear my friend Bill of nearly 65 years has passed away. I met Bill at Control Data Corporation in 1968 in Bethesda, Maryland. I remember he was transferred to Virginia Beach and lived there until he retired and moved to Kitty Hawk. His sense of humor and kindness will never be forgotten. Kaye, Thank you for keeping in touch with me for all these years. Michele

  3. Rest In Peace, brother Bill. You will be sorely missed by all who ever knew you!
    Blessings to you, Kay, may you also find Peace in these stressful times.

    Elliott and Michele
