Bill occupies a sweet place in my memory, for the gentle humor and kind, respectful acceptance he accorded us all. He made me feel comfortable in his presence at a time I was rarely comfortable with myself. I am grateful for the generosity he and Mariette gave us when they invited us to their home.
Bill was a Mensch in the full meaning of that term, and as I think back on it, he was a Tzaddik as well. My heart goes out to Lisette and all of Bill’s family. How fortunate we all were to have known him.
