Bill jr and family, much strength with the loss of a gentle genuine good and hard working man. I have always appreciated the times I met him over the years. Mostly when he allowed me to park my car at his property when flying "home" to Holland. We always took time to sit down and chat a bit. I could tell he loved his land and his home as my dad did when he had a dairy farm. "they don't make 'em like that anymore" Take care. Jaap.
