So sorry to hear of Bill's passing. He was my barber for many years. I would drive from Gibsonia to Blawnox, every month. Spoke to him on phone at hospital, not long before. Then, last month i drove by shop and saw the For Sale sign and I knew things were not good. I always enjoyed hearing about his grandkids, trips to the Rivers Casino and life in general. He never complained.
God Bless you, Bill. May God bless your family.
