My dear Bill, I will miss you so much, I was just there visiting you not too long ago, I’m so sorry I did not stay longer as you wished I would. So many years we shared together beginning in the 70s, the night clubs the dancing the 1320 club all of the fun we had the Silver bullet Jaguar, the laughter the fun we had for so many years, so many good memories. I will miss you but I know you were here with me and my heart and just know that I’m probably not too far behind you LOL so wait for me there at those pearly gates and I’ll see you soon rev up those engines up there keep those people in line I’m sure the real estate needs taken care of behind those pearly gates, I will love you forever thank you for being such a huge part of my life your forever girlfriend.

I was able to get to know Bill when I purchased the James Langhorne House on Federal Street from him. I’ll remember talking to him about history and politics while sitting on the front steps to the house. I am blessed to have been able to buy the old house from Bill and also to get to know him. Rest In Peace my friend.

Bill, we will miss your smile, stories and laughter. The photo I posted is one of my favorites taken when you were visiting us in FL a few years back. It’s hard to believe that you and I were friends and business partners for 50 years! Just last month you were talking about us pitching a new product on Shark Tank! Lynnda sends a big hug to you. Love ❤️
