From the first day I met Bill we were officers at Sing Sing prison, where we developed an everlasting friendship. I last seen Bill at IMAST about a week or so ago, not realizing it will be our last time together. I will miss him very much. Our heartfelt condolences goes out to his fine family. RIP my Brother.
