Thread: Some very upsetting news

    Rest In Peace, Bill. I truly enjoyed the times I had the pleasure of hanging with you.... remembering dinner after XPRS last year fondly... I'm very sad to hear this. So sorry guys. Ugh.

    This is really sad - I only knew Bill through forums, but he was always great to converse with.

    RIP.

    Awful news. I feel very badly that someone of his caliber has passed. His family and friends are in my prayers....as are all of you. I only spoke to Bill through the forums...I know that many of you were very close to him...I am sorry for your loss, his family's loss, and for the loss to the community.

    I will miss his presence....heartbreaking.

    I had just logged on to Facebook and I saw comments from Philippe and Andy. Unlocking my brain I come here and see two threads. We all know how great of a guy Bill is. We are all going to miss him dearly and the Experience will never be the same. Now I really regret missing last year.

    Rest In peace my friend.

    My Dad and I always would have a wonderful time talking to Bill at the Experiences. Bill told my Dad at the last Exp to buy a certain guitar he was eyeing saying "you never how much time you have, life is short."

    So sad...I feel crushed. Peace and love to Bill's family and loved ones. Gonna miss you.

    Bill was true gentleman. You could always count on him to be honest, fair and rational. My sincere condolences to Bill's friends, family and loved ones. You'll be missed Wilerty

    I am so sad to read this...Bill was one of the good ones...and I remember how excited he was when he spec'd out his private stock. Prayers for his family and friends.

    Oh no! Bill is such a great guy. Such a loss for everyone. My prayers go out to his family. I know he was quite proud of his son who he spoke of often.
