Please accept my deepest sympathies for your loss. I had the privilege and pleasure of working with Bill at the Daily Record when he was news desk editor on the copy desk. I could not have asked for a better mentor and fun-loving supervisor. He was very impassioned by journalism and that seeped through to his colleagues. I actually still have my very first Page One that I designed under his tutelage and he was kind enough to frame it for me. There was always laughter in Bill's presence as the puns flew around the newsroom. I will always hold those years near and dear to me.
