I loved Bill's daily visits to the post office and the chats we used to have at the counter. He was definitely a bright spot in my day with a smile and an encouraging word. He will be greatly missed.

Bill I will miss your stories of the rodeo life you had and the many friends that we shared through the years that we have been friends. It was great to meet you and Mary Gayle 37 years ago in LaJunta. Miss you greatly.
