I was so sorry to read this tonight in the paper. I saw Bill every morning at the post office. I am a Huge Wildcat fan and noticed his coat and would talk a little UK basketball. He was a quiet man, but one day when I was out of the office, he stopped by to bring me a calendar with the team picture and all the games. When i got back, I was so surprised to see that he had done that as I am not sure how he knew where I worked. It is still on my fridge and with it being their championship year it is a keeper. I assume the business belongs to a son and I am so thankful for it. Prayers for your family.
