    Dear Sue: We are saddened by the loss of Bill. We will miss his humorous conversations. He was an old and dear friend to all of us in the 44th General Hospital Unit. Especially, the LaCrosse Army Reserve Unit where he was our most senior NCO, for many years.
    I am glad I ran into the both of you at the movies that day, it was nice to catch up with him.
