    My days at Wang Laboratories would never be the same without you. We had so many laughs. Your kind compassionate spirit was felt by all. You touched so many lives and I will forever remember you. You were an amazing person and gave so much of yourself in trying to help others. Thank you Bill for being in my life. Will miss you dearly but I know you will always be with us. Love, Joan
