OMG! This reminds me of another unexpected passing, almost exactly a year to
the day. My deepest condolences to his family, friends, co-workers and all
who knew him personally.
Friendship and genius is difficult, if not impossible, to replace. It is
obvious from his correspondence that Bill was a deeply caring and
opinionated man who was a friend to many and a spearhead to numerous
initiatives at RunRev.
In the wake of such a passing, the best any of us can do is celebrate the
person and their life and be grateful and thankful for the honor and
privilege of having known and benefited from his being.
To those who are left behind, know that when one door closes, another opens,
but it's OK to glance back and remember, and maybe even shed a tear.
Aloha nui loa, Bill. You will live on in the hearts and minds of all those
Aloha from Hawaii,
