Bruce, Stanton brothers and family,
I was saddened to learn of Bill's passing. My sympathy and good thoughts of your father to all of you. We were friends for over 30 years and shared so many hearty laughs and good times working together at Sealright and in retirement. May you all be comforted by the memories you share with your father. I will miss him too.
