Thoughts and Prayers to Bill's Family. As one of his former Baseball players and History students, Bill left a lasting memory with many of our players in 1991-1992.

May God speed Bill's soul to Heaven to rest at the feet of Jesus forever in glory. Bill and I shared many talks throughout high school at Albert Einstein as he lived around the corner and down the street from me. Ginger, I am so sorry for your loss. Much love to you and the family at this difficult time.

Dear Ginger. Bill was such a delightful person to be around and such a loyal friend to my son. I’m sorry he will not be here to continue playing board games and otherwise enjoying his retirement and his family. I know you have a wonderful family and I pray that you will all take comfort in your memories of your time together. Fondly, Ann Pfeiffer.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
