    Ii live in SC and saw Bill in his car oofen, he would beep Hello & wave. In earlier days when Bill enjoyed the company of furry friend Bobby, and so recall one day Bobby appeared to be gone. We walked and yelled in the neighborhood, with no luck.....Bobby was home enjoying a REST. I missed seeing Bill recently, I know he was a positive individual; now I i walk with my dog JEB; but the walks are short; I am nearly blind. my best for health - equals wealth, Charlotte Asher
