I worked together with Bill for many years at McGraw-Hill. He and I kept in touch for years via Facebook and I so appreciate it and look Ed forward to hearing from him and his kind words. Bill was certainly one of the good guys. He loved his family and his friends and I know he will be missed by all.

Bill will be missed by all who knew and worked with him. An experts expert, a truly first class professional, human being and that makes him a true gem. It was a privilege to know him. My thoughts are with his family.

Gone from our sight but never from our heart.
Condolences to all that loved him. I've learned during my lifetime where there is deep love, there is deep grief. Wishing you peace, comfort and love during this time of sorrow.
