Oher than grandfathers and JFK, Bill was the first person I knew who died. I remember my Mother coming the North Hill Drug Store where I  worked, taking me aside and telling telling me gently. Bill and I were friends.

To this day, I feel the sadness and trauma of this loss.  I sat next to Bill in English class. A great guy.
